Seminole State Forest plans rare public event

Published May 01, 2008
Outdoor enthusiasts have a rare opportunity Saturday to tour Seminole State Forest, a sprawling 12,000-acre property filled with springs, streams and wildlife.

Participants can fish in Bear Pond, take a hayride, learn safe boating techniques and hike one mile of the Florida National Scenic Trail. Exhibits on wildlife and prescribed fires and K-9 demonstrations also are planned.

At least 11 springs have been found in the forest, including Blueberry Spring, Snail Spring and Palm Spring.

Saturday's event is scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. at the forest wildlife management area off State Road 46, north of Sanford. The forest is across the Wekiva River in Lake County. Space is limited, so register in advance by calling Seminole State Forest 352-360-6675.
