2021 Summer Wildflower Walk 


Friends of Kissimmee Prairie Preserve are pleased to invite you to join ecologist/educator and author Craig Huegel, Ph.D. who will be leading fall wildflower walks at Kissimmee Prairie Preserve, on October 16th and 17th, 2021. Craig has written several books on native plants and wildlife, and writes a blog dedicated to Florida wildflowers. This is a very popular annual event which usually sells out.


Due to ongoing Covid-19 concerns, each walk (Sat. AM, Sat. PM, and Sun. AM) is limited to only 13 participants. Participants will drive their own vehicles and park along the road at the various walk sites. Please bring your own lunchwater, a hat, sun screen and bug repellant.


PLEASE NOTE: Your place will not be reserved without payment. Be sure your transaction is completed when you sign up. Once paid, you will get confirmation emails from the Friends of Kissimmee Prairie Preserve. Registration is first come / first serve. 


Kissimmee Prairie Preserve is at 33104 NW 192nd Avenue, Okeechobee, FL (Map). Cost is $26 for Friends of Kissimmee Prairie Preserve members. (Become a Friends member by clicking here.) and $36 for non-members. A $4 per vehicle entry fee is also required and must be paid at the gate when you enter the park.
