what to bring

Please review the list below for a relaxing time in the woods coupled with time for learning, connecting, and playing!

Remember, when in Florida on a lakeside during the month of March, anything goes weather-wise. As the event draws near, please check the forecast for Lake Wales, FL (zip code 33893) and be aware of the potential weather variations.

As a general rule, temperatures during this time frame can range from the 40’s and 50’s at night and in the early morning, and up to the ’70s and ’80s during the day.  It could be sunny, it could be rainy, it might be dusty with 300 of your favorite friends walking to herbal classes during the day and dancing in the spirit of nature at night.

Don’t forget to pack a smile!! 😃
