A Friends of Myakka Exclusive Adventure
Have a National Geographic moment on a wildlife trek into the wilds of Myakka. Take a walk to the mysterious Deep Hole at Lower Myakka Lake in
the park’s Wilderness Preserve. The area is usually one of the best places in the park to view eagles, wading birds like roseate spoonbills and sandhill cranes, ducks, shorebirds, and alligators.
Your guide, Bob Richardson, one of Myakka’s famous Bird Interpreters, delights locals and tourists with his knowledge and sharp eye for wildlife. As past president of Sierra Club, he led outings for three years to Dry Tortugas and Belize. As a guide with Big City Mountaineers, Bob led eight week-long backpack trips in the rocky Mountains for inner city kids and he never lost a single one.
This is a 5-mile hike through moderately rough terrain, on sandy soils and along the lakeshore.
This exclusive trip, sponsored by Friends of Myakka River, is limited to 6 participants. Your donation will be used to help care for the park and river.
