Many natural challenges have occured in the park this year with droughts, hurricanes and deluges of water. With this full circle of events the marsh has now filled back up and the miles of trails within are anticipated dry up over the next few months. This leaves our park visitors with many opportunities to explore the park either by hiking, canoeing or kayaking. Park Rangers and Volunteers are busy providing guided hikes in the park and will gladly explain the unique qualities and principles that have created and make this place so exceptional. Please contact our Education Center for details and possible reservations for guided tours (772) 398-2779.
