Welcome to the wet and wild world of Pumpkin Hill Creek Preserve State Park. Discover the importance of this upland area as a wetland buffer preserve for Jacksonville’s water. More than 4,000 acres of forest, swamps and marsh are protected as a filter for our fresh water. Rangers protect and work to restore and maintain these habitats. Learn about the different methods rangers use including wetland monitoring and prescribed fire. Hands-on activities will include animal tracking, water sampling and a fire engine demonstration.

* Fun patch included at the conclusion of the program for every registered Girl Scout girl.
* This event is for 2018 registered Girl Scouts, and registered & approved adult volunteers. If an adult is responsible for a Girl Scout other than their own, the adult must be registered and background checked.
