Halpatiokee Trails of Savannas Preserve State Park
It’s not over yet! The Conservation Alliance and the Indian Riverkeeper are fighting on to protect Halpatiokee Trails/Buffer Preserve (section of Savannas Preserve State Park) from the construction of Crosstown Parkway Bridge in Port St. Lucie.
Join us on Sunday, Feb. 26th to learn about, celebrate and defend this precious section of Savannas Preserve STATE PARK. And send a message to Gov. Scott! Three main features of this event are: 1) At 1:30 p.m.
Guided Tours begin with fish scientist Dr. Grant Gilmore, Ph.D. who will reveal a backwater tarpon nursery on site; Diane Goldberg of Native Plant Society and Audubon who will instruct about the very diverse native Florida habitats and species found here, and Bill Gibson, Indian and St. Lucie River guide who will take folks out on Evans Creek. 2) At 3:00 p.m. is a Press Conference and Mock Memorial Service in which we announce our next steps and set a potent message to Gov. Scott. 3) At 3:45 p.m. the Parade of Beloved Species begins marching out to US1. This is the time for making our voices heard through protest. Please feel free to bring your own signs. Who knows what the future holds? This may be a last best opportunity to visit this beloved “ecological gem.” Let’s send a loud and clear message to the Governor & Dept. of Environmental Protection: Do they want their legacy to be the destruction of our STATE PARKS? See the Conservation Alliance’s Facebook page for more information. Please arrive early for the tours.
