Comments on Paynes Prairie plan

-A A +A

 Those who were at the September Cracker Chapter (FTA) meeting are aware of the discussion about major changes that are about to be implemented at Paynes Prairie. I asked one of the members of "Friends of the Prairie" to provide the address of a park official so that we might voice our individual concerns about the change. The following is her response:


David W. Jowers

100 Savannah Boulevard

Micanopy, Florida 32667

Please note that Jim Weimer, biologist at Paynes Prairie, will be our speaker at our next Cracker meeting at 6:30 October 21st at Brasington's. He should be able to give us an update.
