About the trip:

Laurie expects to show the group some of the Florida Scrub-Jay families living in the Triangle Tract of the Cross Florida Greenway.  She will
also give a brief history of the tract, scrub management techniques, and species management.

Some walking involved but probably no more than a 1-mile round trip.
