Sallie Parks and Todd Pressman, Governing Board members and co-chairs ex officio of the Pinellas-Anclote River Basin Board, helped celebrate the opening of a new trail during the festivities surrounding World Rivers Day at Brooker Creek Preserve.
The World Rivers Day FEST, a free event for families, featured the grand opening of the preserve’s new trail system. The trail system includes more than four miles of natural trails with boardwalks connecting it to the Brooker Creek Preserve Environmental Education Center. The event also highlighted area waterways and offered practical ideas and materials to make a difference in residents’ homes and communities. District staff was there to share information about water conservation and hold demonstrations for children of all ages.
