ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding, and rewarding, programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
The subtropical wonders of South Florida amazed early visitors and naturalists, and today this patchwork of interconnected ecosystems remains one of the world’s most awe-inspiring landscapes. Explore the Fakahatchee Strand — the “Amazon of North America” — and participate in a marsh walk in the Big Cypress. Enjoy a lecture about the restoration and wildlife recovery efforts that provide hope for the future.
