The museum isn't that great but the trails are wonderful! This is a great place to go if you are working on your life list for the Florida Fish and Wildlife for birds. You can also rent kayaks and canoes for tours.

Great for nature walk, birds lovers and photographer. You get to see osperys, egrets, pelicans, herons and many more, also great for hiking.
