This is a wonderful tract to walk thru. We saw 6 baby alligators. Lots bird to photograph also. They also have some interesting talks. On Wednesday at 10 am there is a talk about the homestead and how it became SCCF property, very interesting

We really enjoyed our visit with multiple hiking trail options ranging from 1/4 of a mile to 4 miles. The small butterfly garden is a pleasure as is the native plant nursery. Educational exhibits inside helped us understand the overall eco needs of the area...More
