The Myakka Conservancy Inc. invites you to experience a trail ride on horseback or a hayride on a wagon pulled by Clydesdales followed by a “Florida Cracker” barbecue to benefit conservation efforts for the Myakka River Magical Mile on Saturday, February 25 at the Strickland Ranch in Myakka City.



The trail ride and hay ride will be from 4-6 p.m. with the barbecue, live music, dancing and a silent auction following at 6:30-10 p.m. Costs are: $125 for the trail ride and barbecue; $75 for the hay ride and barbecue, and $50 for the barbecue only.

Proceeds will benefit the conservation and management of property held by The Myakka Conservancy Inc., a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization based in Sarasota. The Magical Mile includes 1.3 miles of river and about 62 acres of uplands and wetlands located just north of the Myakka River State Park.



“We call it the Magical Mile because it’s the first mile of the Wild & Scenic River section of the Myakka,” said Julie Morris, a founding member of the conservancy’s board and assistant vice president for Academic Affairs at New College of Florida. “The property is a microcosm of the conservation and management challenges presented by human interaction with the Myakka ecosystem.”
