This is the second of two debris clean ups at FWC Henscratch


Clean Up Old Debris to Restore Scrub Habitat

We’ll be moving along firebreaks and trails in 4WD vehicles gathering old dumped debris. Removing this debris from conservation areas increases safety for both the wildlife and conservation workers, and helps to return the area to a pristine natural state.


Please wear sturdy closed-toe footwear, long pants and long sleeves, and a hat.

Please bring a hiker’s water bottle or similar and work gloves!

We’ll have cold drinking water, and all the tools necessary.


Meet at the intersection of Grand Concourse and Hines Ways

The approximate address is 4132 Grand Concourse, Sebring, FL 33875

Look for the Sebring Lakes Blvd intersection on the west side of US 27, which is:

·         If coming from Sebring, about 4 miles south of the US 98/US27 intersection

·         If coming from Lake Placid, about 5 miles north of the Railroad Trestle Overpass on US 27.

You’ll be going west on Sebring Lakes Blvd, and in about a half mile turn right (north) onto Temple Street, then shortly left onto Majesty Street, then right onto Byrd Street, and then left onto Grand Concourse.

Grand Concourse intersects with Hines Way on the left in about 1.4 miles. The last part of Grand Course becomes a hard pack gravel road, but all vehicles will be able to drive on it.


The FWC Henscratch Tract is part of the Lake Wales Ridge Wildlife and Environmental Area. The most distinctive natural community on the Lake Wales Ridge is scrub, home to one of the rarest collections of plants and animals in the world. Healthy scrub has the appearance of a miniature forest with trees seldom taller than 10 feet and open patches of sand. The WEA contains 20 of 22 federally listed plant species known to occur on the Lake Wales Ridge
