Active Adults Trip - Deerfield Island Park

Saturday, January 20, 2018

This month we invite senior community members to visit the Deerfield Island Park. Deerfield Island is a 53.3-acre nature-oriented park offering outdoor recreational opportunities and environmental education. Accessible only by boat, this roughly triangular park is bordered by the Intracoastal Waterway and the Hillsboro and Royal Palm canals. 

The eastern portion of the area once included slash pines, while most of the western part was a treeless freshwater marsh. Today, remnants of the wetland are evident, although red and white mangroves are the dominant species. Many of the site's native plants and animals have succumbed to invasive, non-native species over the years, but native plants that provide food for native animals are being reintroduced.

We depart from Collins Community Center at 9:00 AM
This trip is Free!
