About the Site
Guided programs through the diverse ecosystems and rich history of this 80 year old site are led by trained facilitators or our on-staff Horticulturist to allow for a meaningful learning experience. There are 7 major ecotypes on the property, a spectrum of wildlife both aquatic and terrestrial, and an up-close encounter with the natural world. There is a rainforest, a hardwood hammock, cypress slough, desert garden and much more to offer students from a wide range of lifestyles and demographics. Our educational programs are designed to support Florida Learning Standards and utilize active garden experiences to engage students in cross-curricular investigations, as well as meet Nature face-to-face in a user-friendly environment.
