Ranger Rick Talks About the Impact of Budget Cuts on Flatwoods
It's devastating to hear that Hillsborough County's proposed budgets cuts would mean the closing of Flatwoods county park for TWO days a week. I went out late this afternoon to Flatwoods and I met up with the nicest ranger in Flatwoods -- Ranger Rick. He's a great guy and I talked with Ranger Rick about the fact that he would lose his job and that the park would be closed two days a week. Ranger Rick said Flatwoods might be closed entirely in a few years down the road.
Here's a peak at Flatwoods along the seven-mile loop. A wild boar crossed the loop road ahead of me, which I refer to in the video.
