In this outdoor educational field trip unravel the mysterious ways through which time, water and fire have shaped one of the oldest and largest state parks in Florida.

Follow a winding trail through a misty floodplain forest and look for clues of natural and exotic disturbance.

Traverse a suspension bridge and view native orchids clinging to canopy branches, before climbing to the top of a 74 foot lookout tower.

Explore Myakka Lake and discover why alligators are often considered “ecosystem engineers. ”

Employ binoculars to locate and identify native herons, egrets and other wading birds.

Use a cast net to investigate species of aquatic fish and invertebrates. Conduct real water quality tests for evidence of human impact on the Myakka habitats and surrounding watershed.
