Description

This swamp walk led by an experienced Naturalist will immerse you in the beauty and diversity of the Fakahatchee Strand Preserve the largest State Park in Florida.. For many visitors, a Friends of Fakahatchee Swamp Walk is the highlight of their Florida visit. Participants wade in cool water for half a day observing the native wildlife and plants in the Fakahatchee Strand. This is a long, and at times strenuous walk into the heart of the Fakahatchee. Participants will be required to sign a standard release of liability form.

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.
