Friends of Myakka River

Looking for an opportunity to give back?
Then join us for our MAY Bike Myakka for Good Service Ride!
Registration is now CLOSED.
Not a Friends member yet? Annual Individual Memberships are $25, Family Memberships are $35. Join us HERE.
On Saturday, May 13, we'll celebrate National Bike Month AND Coreopsis bloom season by searching for gold, while discussing the importance of Florida's popular State Wildflower, and other native plants, for Myakka's delicate ecosystems. Then, after a short (under an hour) invasive plant removal service project, we will enjoy a free picnic lunch, sponsored by generous grant funds from Adventure Cycling and National Environmental Education Foundation.
And during lunch, we'll be drawing the winning ticket for our ALKI 2 by IZIP Bicycle Drawing of Chance! You can purchase your drawing tickets ( $5.00 each, or 5/$20.00) at the Ranger Station prior to May 13. Or, you'll have a chance to do so right before the drawing at our event! All funds raised directly support Myakka River State Park and the Wild and Scenic Myakka River.
PLEASE NOTE: Total ride distance will be approximately 7 miles on paved road. Lunch will take place in a covered pavilion.
