RELEASE DATE: March 29, 2013

TAVARES — Park rangers invite residents and visitors to discover the ecosystems, management and wildlife at a hike on The Pasture Reserve.

“Explore Your Reserve Hike” will be from 8 to 10 a.m. Saturday, April 6 at The Pasture Reserve on Lake Erie Road, Groveland. 

The event is free and preregistration is recommended. To maximize the outdoor experience, participants are encouraged to bring binoculars, field guides, water, snacks, sunscreen, insect repellent, a hat and hiking shoes.
