Event description

Description

Many people say the only way to experience the beauty and diversity of the Fakahatchee Strand is to immerse yourself in it. For many visitors, a Friends of Fakahatchee Swamp Walk is the highlight of their Florida visit. Led by experienced park biologists, participants wade in cool water up to their waists for half a day observing the native wildlife and plants in the Fakahatchee Strand. This is a long, strenuous walk into the heart of the Fakahatchee. Participants will be required to sign a standard release of liability form. Any cancellations must be made 48 hours in advance to receive refund.

Swamp walkers should wear long pants and lace-up boots or sneakers (no waders or open-top boots). A hat and long-sleeved shirt are also recommended. Bring water, snacks, or lunch. Bring bug repellent if you are sensitive. Put anything you do not want to get wet in zip-lock plastic bags. You can change into your dry clothes in the park's restroom for your return home.

Swamp walkers meet the biologist at the Ranger Station off Janes’ Scenic Drive no later than 9:30 a.m. and can expect to be back by 2.30 p.m.

The Park's ranger station is located at 137 Coast Line Drive, Copeland, FL off of Janes Scenic drive, Janes Scenic drive is only acessible via SR 29 ( between I-75 and US 41) DO NOT rely on incorrect GPS information providing other routes to access Jane Scenic dirve in Copeland.
