The City of Wauchula will be hosting a guided tour of Peace River Park. The tour is open to the public and will be free of charge. Sturdy walking shoes, sunscreen and water are recommended. The tour will start at 9 a.m. and typically lasts 2 hours.

Peace River Park is a 155-acre parcel of land located on the south side of Main Street and on the west side of the Peace River within the Wauchula City limits. The majority of the Peace River Park tract has never been significantly altered or developed for agriculture or other land uses. The project is managed to preserve the mixed bottomland hardwood forest, improve public access to Peace River, and to provide optimal wildlife habitat, outdoor recreation and environmental education opportunities.

Topics of discussion will include plant identification, natives vs. exotics, Peace River, wetlands and flooding.  Any questions feel free to call Olivia Minshew at 863-773-9193.
