Fourth of July weekend is quickly approaching and Florida State Parks reminds everyone to remain safe, use sunscreen and have fun. All 171 of Florida’s state parks and trails are open on Independence Day. Remember to be mindful of all wildlife, but especially the nesting and resting birds. Also, keep Florida’s nature and environment in mind and clean up after you enjoy your day. Double check your area as you leave and remove all trash, tents, chairs and additional items. Consider volunteering with a cleanup at a nearby Florida state park on July 5. Call any park’s ranger station to check for opportunities.
Florida State Parks wishes everyone a safe and enjoyable holiday weekend.
