A NOTE FROM THE MANAGER

John Lakich

Fall is finally here, although you may not be able to tell from the warm weather we've been having. Some of the 'snowbirds' have started to arrive, the feathered variety. The annual raptor or hawk migration has started as it usually does this time of year. Already, we've had several visitors to the park including the American kestrel, osprey, red-tailed hawk, short-tailed hawk, red-shouldered hawk, peregrine falcon, merlin, broad-winged hawk, swallow-tailed kite, sharp-shinned hawk and bald eagle.

Come and enjoy our corner of "...the Real Florida."

Note: Tram service to the beach operates every weekend and state holidays 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
