Jubilee Ecotourism Expo

February 6, 2016 | 11 am - 5 pm | Jupiter Community Center | Multi-Purpose Gym

Here's why we need to utilize our parks, natural areas and trails.  Jupiter, and the north county area, is rich in ecotourism opportunities; hiking, kayaking, canoeing, stand up paddleboarding, horseback riding trails, bird watching, trial bicycling, etc.  

Visit with vendors rain or shine in the Jupiter Community Center Multi-Purpose Gym regarding helpful ecotourism opportunities for all ages and abilities!  Just follow the popcorn smell!
