Cape Florida State Park


Facilitated by Kiki Mutis

(6 hours of Professional Development Credit for Faculty)

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.
