For those who want to explore more than Disney and the beaches, this site will guide you through Florida’s extraordinary wildlife and natural places.
With links, addresses and phone numbers, the site has all the information you need to find, identify, and learn about the state’s plants and wildlife, as well as an insider’s view of the best places to visit. We also have suggestions for unique things to do such as going on a turtle walk, riding a tube down a spring run, or searching for fossils.
We are constantly adding and updating, so check back often.
