Join Park Rangers at a fall wildlife hike at Lake May Reserve

RELEASE DATE: November 2, 2012

TAVARES – The Lake County Parks & Trails Division is inviting residents to join Park Rangers on a guided hike through Lake May Reserve, located at County Road 44A in Eustis, on Friday, Nov. 9, from 8 to 11 a.m.

During the hike, participants will be led through the reserve to view some of the native landscape, which includes xeric oak hammock and scrub, pine and hardwood forested areas. The property also features Lake May, a twenty-acre lake located on the western half of the property.

“Lake May Reserve is one of the County’s newest park properties that opened to the public,” said Rachel Dellinger, Park Ranger with the Lake County Parks & Trails Division. “It’s a beautiful reserve, and while on the hike, we’re bound to see plenty of birds and native plants.”

The event is free, and pre-registration is recommended due to space limitations. To maximize the nature experience, would-be participants are encouraged to bring binoculars, water, snacks, sunscreen, insect repellent, a hat and hiking shoes.

For more information about upcoming events, or to make reservations to attend, call the Lake County Parks & Trails Division at 352-253-4950, email parksandtrails@lakecountyfl.gov or visit www.lakecountyfl.gov/parks.
