Go Take a Hike - BIKE McCoys Creek
Head outside for a hike along the banks of the St. Johns River or one of its tributaries. While we are enjoying the outdoors, we will talk about the history, ecology, and issues facing our St. Johns River.
In November, St. Johns Riverkeeper and our young professionals group, Rising Tides, has partnered with Groundwork Jacksonville to provide a guided BIKE tour showcasing McCoys Creek, one of the urban creeks within the Emerald Trail, a 30-mile trail system encircling the urban core that is currently under construction. We will begin and end the ride at the Duval County School Superintendent Building with stops to highlight features of the McCoys Creek Restoration project and areas that Rising Tides members have helped to improve through cleanups over the last 9 years. Phase 1 of the McCoys Creek Restoration is underway and the project is intended to clean the water, create more natural habitat for birds, fish and wildlife, and provide parks, trails and access for creek recreation. Additional activities possible on site, and all materials will be distributed per family. All ages welcome!
