November 18, 2017 - Walk the Watershed – Trip Leader – Elizabeth Stephens
9am, Kewannee Park, 1505 Kewannee Trail, Casselberry 
We will “walk the watershed” by doing a brief walking tour of Seminole County’s Lake Jesup Stormwater project by Kewannee Park. Features will include Kewannee Lake, the Regional Stormwater Facility (RSF), and Cassel Creek, as well as the adjacent educational trail. Native shoreline plants have been installed to remove nutrients from the water before it enters the RSF, and volunteers have helped to remove invasive plants from the waterway.   Seminole County SERV Coordinator. Free. Reservations 407 302-7616.

December 9, 2017 – Lake Apopka Wildlife Drive – Trip Leader – Beth Jackson
9am. Meet at Magnolia Park, 2929 S. Binion Rd. Apopka.  We will caravan along the Lake Apopka Wildlife Drive, a one-way 11-mile drive beginning at Lust Road and ending on Jones Road.  We will stop along the way into “pull over” areas to observe and discuss what we see.  The former farmlands that make up the Lake Apopka North Shore includes marsh and floodplain restoration and the creation of a marsh flow-way that filters Lake Apopka’s waters by circulating lake water through restored wetlands, returning cleaner water to the lake. The wildlife drive is along a portion of the former farm fields. After our drive, we can return to picnic at Magnolia Park.  Free. Reservations.  407 302-7616.
