01-16-2018 Tour of Shingle Creek with Eleanor Forste

A group  of 20 Garden Club members and friends enjoyed a very informative and entertaining conducted tour of the Shingle Creek Regional Park by Eleanor Forste.  We met at the Welcome Center of Osceola County History center and then followed the trail past cracker houses across bridges over the creek and headed into the wetland. Eleanor described the vegetation we were walking through, detailing the difference between different pines and oaks. She pointed out poison ivy, ‘three leaves let it be’. The walk lasted two hours and we then enjoyed lunch at Smokey Bones.
