Wet Walks

Six Mile Cypress Slough Preserve is again hosting off the boardwalk strolls along the wet walk trail usually closed to the public. The invigorating, beautiful path is immersed in the watery heart of the Slough. Group size is limited to 16. You must be at least 10 years old to participate because of the possible water depth. Contact Charles O’Connor at rcoc77@embarqmail.com. All walks are at 10 a.m. and a second walk at 1 p.m. We’ll be walking in fresh, clean rainwater, usually up to our waists. You will exit wet but not muddy, and we have a rinse off hose. Wet walk donations ($10 suggested) are used to sponsor summer camp scholarships, purchase educational supplies, fund student slough trips, and to support educational programs. Reservations required.
