Participants will learn about the natural and cultural history of
Cape Florida State Park System, also called ‘Bill Baggs Cape Florida
State Recreation Area’. Participants will take a walking tour to
learn about the cultural and ecological importance of the only
state park that shares its boundaries with Biscayne National Park.
This workshop will offer participants the opportunity to learn how
Stilts Ville, the Underground Railroad, the Seminole Indians and
Hurricane Andrew have had an impact in the Park and our state’s
history. Participants will be expected to relate the workshop
experience to their department or discipline and develop ways to
incorporate concepts of ecological sustainability into their College
work or current course objectives.
