Bring your canine companion(s) to GTMNERR on Saturday, January 14th for the same beautiful hike we took in November - the yellow trail (see map below) to great views of the Intercoastal. This trail is a very popular one for dogs - nice and wide so you can easily keep your dog out of tick-harboring undergrowth. Of course, all dogs must be leashed.
An easy hike, it's a two mile round-trip (or as much as your dog can handle). As before, we'll walk through diverse habitats: old growth hardwoods, a freshwater marsh and large cedar trees along the Tolomato River - the site of the Juan Andreu - a Minorcan settlement.
This hike is for everyone - two-legged and four-legged alike.
Spread the word to your friends with dogs. It's a great opportunity to meet people who share your love of nature and your desire to preserve 99 acres of conservation land at the Outpost.
GTM charges $3 per car, and we're suggesting a $5 per adult contribution to Save Guana Now. (You'll get a bumper sticker like the spoonbill sticker above!) C
losed toed shoes, hats, water and bug spray recommended. And please clean up after your dog.
DATE: Saturday, January 14th
TIME: 10:00 a.m.
DIRECTIONS: Our meeting place is the trail head at GTMNERR on A1A. Head south on A1A from Ponte Vedra, and you'll see the signs that direct you to take a right to GTM. S
top at the main gate and pay to enter by placing three dollars in the blue envelope and then tearing off the blue hanger for your mirror or dash. Drive straight across the dam and it dead ends at the trail head.
Please reply to this email if you think you'll join us so we can give GTM an idea of how many are coming.
As an important reminder, if you haven't already done so....
We're anticipating a hearing in early 2017, and we need to fight hard to keep Guana as pristine as it is now - with no habitat destruction or contamination of the lake from 77 proposed homes at the Outpost. Please spread the word to those who cherish the natural beauty of Guana and the wildlife it protects.
We hope to see you and your dog Saturday, January 14th at 10 a.m. at the start of the yellow trail below!
