Linda Pedersen Park, just off of Shoal Line Blvd is a great little preserve to visit.
During our visit there were at least a dozen manatees…. This young manatee was unfortunate to be hurt by what seems to be wounds from a boat propeller..
Beautiful Leather Ferns grow through the marsh in the preserve.
Many people do visit Linda Pedersen Park, great spot to picnic and fish.. however.. still there are those that need to learn about the “Leave no Trace“…
