A Virtual Walk in the Woods

By Margaret Wheaton

Imagine a walk in a quiet Florida forest with a guide who can tell you about the local plants and animals as well as the history of the area. To top it off, give him the ability to share poetry that conveys his love of nature. That describes a lovely afternoon with naturalist, guide, author, and poet Steve Franklin.

Steve frequently guides nature tours at Mackay Gardens and Lakeside Preserve in Lake Alfred. Now there is a way to enjoy a tour if you can’t schedule the time to visit Mackay. Steve has created "A Virtual Tour of Mackay Gardens and Lakeside Preserve" using PowerPoint.

The LakeAlfred Historical Society arranged for Steve to present his Virtual Tour on Tuesday, March 1, at the Lake Alfred Public Library. Steve's next Nature Walk at Mackay Gardens and Lakeside Preserve will be this Sunday, March 6th at 2pm.

By the way, “Mackay” rhymes with “sky.”
