Join us for a sunset stroll through the beautiful pine savannah of Blackwater Creek Nature Preserve!

We'll keep an eye out for native wildflowers, birds, otters, deer, and fox squirrels as we ramble along the grassy trail down to the overlook at Blackwater Creek. The sun will set as we hike and we'll return to the parking lot in the dark, enjoying the sounds of the night along the way and maybe even catching a glimpse of the stars!
