Description

On this educational adventure, you can wander through the Fakahatchee Strand with Corkscrew Swamp's naturalist guides. This walk is tailored towards experienced participants.

For these Advanced Swamp Walks, we will meet at Fakahatchee's ranger station at 137 Coastline Drive, Copeland, Fl. This location is approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour south from Corkscrew Swamp Santuary. From here, you will board a Corkscrew vehicle and drive down Jane's Scenic Drive to the start of our walk.

Locations within the Fakahatchee will vary depending on water levels, please contact corkscrewtours@audubon.org for more details.

You will explore the Fakahatchee with your guides, who will talk about the watershed, the forest, and point out some of the many plants, birds and other wildlife.

The water level will be at least knee deep for most of the swamp walk with some deeper areas. The swamp with deep water is especially beautiful! We will be on an uneven surface with some roots, branches and logs to navigate through and around.

Participants must be physically able to walk on uneven surfaces through water and be able to climb onto a vehicle. All participants must sign a liability waiver, and must be at least 18 to participate in the Advanced Walks.
