On this guided walk you will view the unique ecosystems of the mangroves, identify trees & shrubs, and learn how these plants can fit into your home landscape. Additionally, you will experience the habitats that support many different Florida creatures. Learn about the mangrove community, its ability to protect the shoreline, and its key function to provide a nursery for fish, birds, crustaceans and other creatures.

This guided walk along this special corridor is led by Charlotte Co. Extension Master Gardeners who have completed an extensive training course sponsored by the Univ. of Florida, as well as specialized training regarding the flora along this pathway.

The walk departs from the large star in the pathway, located in the north corner of the Fisherman’s Village parking lot, near the outdoor exercise equipment. The walk will last approximately 1 1/2 hours. Participants should wear comfortable clothing and footwear and it is recommended to bring water and sunscreen.
