ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
Led by experts, learn or refine your birding techniques by observing migrant and resident birds in prime birding areas of central Florida: Lake Woodruff National Wildlife Refuge and the Ocala National Forest. Observe rare, endangered, and special birds such as the Florida Scrub Jay, Limpkin, Red-cockaded Woodpecker, Purple Gallinule, Piping Plover, Wood Stork, and Sandhill Crane.

• By special invitation, visit Lake Apopka Restoration Area for wading birds, waterfowl, bald eagles and other raptors.
