Learn why our area is so ecologically incredible

From our meeting location at CPI headquarters (46 Kinsey Road, Crawfordville), we will hop in our 12-passenger van and travel out to our own Apalachicola Lowlands Preserve, making plenty of stops along the way. While the longleaf pine ecosystem will be our overall focus, we also will experience many other embedded habitats such as pitcher plant bogs, ephemeral wetlands, and blackwater streams. Get up close and personal with creatures and plants galore...including some of the threatened, endangered, or endemic species that call our Preserve home. There will be plenty of opportunities for photographers!

The $75 fee includes transportation, and complementary snacks/drinks. It also includes CPI president Ryan Means, who will be your fearless, friendly, and expert guide. You should bring shoes you can get wet, insect repellant if you desire, and perhaps some sunscreen. We will frolick-walk approximately three miles at the preserve. Proceeds go towards our efforts to preserve the biodiversity of the southeastern Coastal Plain.

Cancellation Policy: If minimum number is not reached, or if inclement weather, there may be cancellation. People who need to cancel after purchasing a slot on the trip will be refunded if made 48 hours or more before trip. Alternatively, we will put you on a waiting list for future equivalent trips.
