Event description

Description

This swamp walk is led by the Fakahatchee Preserve Biologist who has conducted more than 500 swamp walks, the swamp walk takes place six miles into the Preserve and will immerse you in the beauty and diversity of the largest State Park in Florida.

During the day the Park Biologist will encourage you to assist him in locating flora and fauna adding to years of his data entry.

Participants wade in cool water up to mid thighs observing the native wildlife and plants in the Fakahatchee Strand. This is a long, sometimes strenuous walk into the heart of the Fakahatchee Preserve. Participants will be required to sign a standard release of liability form.

Swamp walkers are required to wear long pants and lace-up boots or sneakers (no waders or open-top shoes). A hat and long-sleeve shirt are also recommended.

Bring water and snacks, bug repellent if you are sensitive. You can change into your dry clothes at the park's restroom for your return home.

Swamp walkers meet the Park Biologist at the Park's small visitor center no later than 9:30 AM and will drive their own vehicle following the Park Biologist on Jane Scenic drive for a slow six mile drive to the swamp walk location. Expect to be back to the point of departure at approximately 2.30 PM.
