An invitation from the organizers:
“Join us for an exciting day planned at Little Orange Creek Nature Park in Hawthorne at the 4th Annual William Bartram Day. The event will feature William Bartram in costume and first person giving a fascinating talk for both adults and children.
Live music, native plant sales, storytelling, booths of handmade crafts, local artists, Earthskills demonstrators and southern style food will give visitors a glimpse of what life was like in William Bartram’s time. Children can also take part in crafts and games. Please come out and enjoy the day! William Bartram Day will be held at the Little Orange Creek Nature Park located 1.3 miles east of Hawthorne on State Road 20 (24115 SE Hawthorne Road, Hawthorne). We encourage visitors to ‘dress the part’ to help create an “Old Florida” atmosphere. For further information call 352-494-3790.”
