About This Activity

Description: Join us for a morning run through the woods at Pine Jog, one of the oldest nature lefts in the country. The Wild Orchid 5K winds through 132 acres of pine flatwood forest and upland hammock, along packed dirt trails, under tree canopies, and past rare, and endangered native orchids. The course has much to offer for every runner, from serious runners to families with little ones and everyone in between

Beneficiaries: All race proceeds benefit the OrKids programming at FAU Pine Jog. This student outreach portion of our Million Orchid Program is offered at no cost to the schools and introduces middle school-aged students to a plant propagation lab, and allows them to propagate their own native orchids in their regular classrooms while learning about botany, ecosystem services and restoration. All of the orchids grown in the OrKids program will remain on the school campuses, as a reminder of the project and the importance of environmental stewardship
