Pine Rocklands Naturewalk through Rockdale Pineland Preserve

Event Description:

Pine Rocklands occur only in South Florida, the Florida Keys, and some islands of the Bahamas. These pinelands, interspersed with hardwood hammocks, once covered 185,000 acres of Miami-Dade County. By the time the city of Miami celebrated its 100th anniversary in 1996, only 2% of the pine forest remained within the urbanized areas of the County and outside of the protective border of Everglades National Park. Take a journey though one of the remaining urban pine rocklands oasis with a walk through Rockdale Pineland Preserve!
