Make a commitment to being healthy and active! The Florida Department of Health in Columbia County is hosting a Community Walk along O’Leno State Park’s main paved drive.

This month after the health walk we will have a Park Ranger demonstrating how to cook a healthy campfire recipe. Are you looking for some culinary inspiration during for your next camping trip? Want to brush up on your fire-building skills and learn how to prepare tasty, healthy foods on an open fire? Then the Healthy Campfire Cooking Program is for you! Brought to you by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection in partnership with the Florida Department of Health, the Healthy Campfire Cooking program is designed to create opportunities for park visitors to try healthier camping foods while learning new recreational skills.
