Sunset in the Hollows – Florida Master Naturalist Program Festival

November 7 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

We are excited to invite the Florida Master Naturalists to come out and celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Florida Master Naturalist Program on November 7th.

If you are an FMNP graduate please come join us and learn how a group of concerned citizens can band together to Protect the Wildlife, Restore the Habitat, and Engage the Public.

And if you’re not an FMNP graduate come mingle with the graduates and learn more about this program that will make you more aware of Florida’s environment.

Also, please consider making a donation to the FMNP endowment to build up funds to ensure that the FMNP continues on into the future. Here is the link: https://www.uff.ufl.edu/giving-opportunities/023463-florida-master-naturalist-program-endowment-fund/

For all the donations this year (of any amount), donors will receive a 20th-anniversary pin.

• What We’ll Do – Come enjoy a nature walk on the grassy 2-mile trail around HAH or take a shorter stroll along our berms. Enjoy sunset photography, bird-watching, and exploring this beautiful habitat. You can see the bat houses and an owl box. At sunset, people have seen raccoons, deer, and bobcats. You can also see the Audubon Native Plant Garden in the Southeast corner and our Keep Brevard Beautiful Native Plant Garden at the Rock Springs Gate entrance. We are always looking for people to help with maintaining the beauty of our gardens and property. Let us know how you would like to help.

• What to Bring – Drinking water, sunscreen, bug spray, binoculars, cameras, hat and recommend wearing closed-toe shoes.

• Important to Know – There are no restroom facilities. The trails are primitive and may have holes, gopher tortoise burrows, and other obstacles, please be cautious. Please be mindful not to block resident driveways, mailboxes, and trashcans. Pets are not allowed.

Please observe social distancing. We have lots of space for you to get out and enjoy a beautiful walk.
