FNPS Mangrove Chapter April 2017 Field Trip

The Mangrove Chapter of the Florida Native Plant Society invites the public to join in a nature walk at 9 am on April 29, 2017 at Shamrock Park, 3900 Shamrock Drive in Venice, Florida.

Shamrock Park encompasses some of the last remaining scrub habitat in the coastal area of Sarasota County. The park supports populations of Florida scrub jay and gopher tortoise. It includes a 1.2 mile paved multi-use trail that winds through the central portion of the park. The park trail system connects to the Venetian Waterway Trail, which further connects to the 10.6 mile Legacy Trail. This network of trails offers park visitors the opportunity to walk, bike or roller blade from Shamrock Park to downtown Venice, the historic train station, Caspersen Beach, and north to Sarasota with several parks to visit along the way. Join us on a leisurely exploration of this beautiful area. For more information you may contact Al Squires at 941-769-3633 or email him at ahsquires@embarqmail.com.
DIRECTIONS: Drive north on Rt 776 to US 41. Take US 41 to Shamrock Dr. Turn left directly onto Shamrock Dr, then right into the park.

The Florida Native Plant Society promotes the preservation, conservation, and restoration of the native plants and native plant communities of Florida.
