What Students Had to Say

The different ecosystem are closer to each other and very easy to recognize.

It was a great experience that I enjoyed a lot. It was very helpful and I learned many new things that I'm planning on putting to sue to try to help the environment.

I was surprised to learn that fire is not necessarily a bad thig for the Everglades. Controlled fires are actually necessary.

One of the things that have surprise me it has been how the cycle works and how if one animal or plant gets destroyed then it could affect in a bad or good way of habitat.


Yearly passes are only $25 and individual passes per car are only $10. Walking through nature and learning about every plant and animal.

The guides were very knowledgeable and fun/exciting to be with and listen.
