What you'll do
We will be touring one of the last remaining pristine salt marshes in South Florida! We begin the hike by admiring a wide variety of lush tropical vegetation in a uplands system while learning about the local history. We then hike south, over primitive trails, where we will explore a series of fresh water lakes. Our destination is an expansive salt marsh where, invertebrates, butterflies, and wading birds are plentiful. We will end with a light break before heading back.

Where you'll be
We will be exploring a unique and wild environment within rapidly changing Southwest Florida. Each experience will be different. I will determine the perfect trail, based on the day’s weather conditions and the group’s hiking experience. I will send the trail and meeting information the day before the experience.
