Scrub Jay Walk

May 7, 2014 to April 1, 2015  8:30 AM - 8:45 AM

Join a park ranger on the first Wednesday of each month and learn about the globally imperiled sand pine scrub ecosystem and its inhabitants.

   Walk through the globally imperiled Florida scrub and learn about this unique ecosystem and the wildlife that depend on it to survive. Jonathan Dickinson contains one of the largest tracts of scrub remaining in Florida and is home to the endangered Florida scrub-jay, which is often seen in the park. The challenge of scrub land management will be discussed while looking for the endangered Florida scrub jay and other wild scrub inhabitants.
