JUP Girl’s Picks of the Week (September 12th – September 18th)

What to Do:

September 17th, 8 a.m.Swamp Tromp @ Cypress Creek Natural Area, 10035 West Indiantown Road, Jupiter.  One of my very favorite natural areas in our community!  Ever wonder what’s off the trail at Cypress Creek Natural Area?  Come slog through the wetlands with ERM staff and see what wonders are hiding off the beaten path.  This will be a 1.5 mile hike with knee deep water in some locations, so you may want to bring a towel and some dry clothes/shoes for after the hike.  They will provide water, cups, hiking sticks and a fruit snack.  Please bring a water bottle so that you can fill it up before the hike.  They’ll also bring bug spray and sun screen (but you should also bring your own).  Part of the Palm Beach County Department of Environmental Resource Management’s “Adventure Awaits” program.  Click here for free registration.

September 17th, 9:30 a.m.Guided Pedal @ Riverbend Park, 9060 West Indiantown Road, Jupiter.  Discover the trails of Riverbend with a naturalist guiding the way.  This tour is a leisurely pedal of the trails.  Enjoy looking for wildlife and stopping occasionally at points of interest.  No bike?  No problem!  Bikes are available for rent from Canoe Outfitters.  To reserve your spot, call John Welch at 561-741-1359.  $5 per person.

September 18th, 4 p.m.Young Friends of Jupiter Beach Cleanup @ Ocean Cay Park, southeast corner of  US Hwy. 1 at 2188 Marcinski Road.  Young Friends of Jupiter Beach, a group of high school students who care about the environment, was started by Graham Zucker, a high school student at William T. Dwyer High School. The 3rd Sunday of the month, at 4 PM, the students gather at Ocean Cay Park for a beach cleanup. The students are becoming the next generation of environmental stewards and know the importance of preserving Jupiter’s beaches, its’ habitat and marine life for future generations. Students from local and neighboring high schools are invited to join the group. After the beach cleanups the students gather for volleyball games and snacks. As the group grows they continue to look for other ways to expand their environmental preservation message.
