I was looking forward to taking a key Marco Rubio supporter into the Big Cypress on February 8 with a back-up date of February 20. The chief ranger at Big Cypress National Preserve said the water is too high now and it will still be too high in March. He suggested next year. Someone else suggested hiking north from Hwy I-75 (Alligator Alley) but I’m unfamiliar with that section, so I hesitate to plan a trip.
I am taking the Regional Director for Senator Bill Nelson out to the Rice Creek Sanctuary next weekend, her first introduction to the Florida Trail.
On February 29, I will be in Washington DC with Larry Luxenberg, fellow board member, for four appointments seeking support for our mission.
