Natural Florida

Enjoy a quiet walk around the half-mile Nature Trail loop through a live oak tree hammock, a longleaf pine forest area under restoration, and along the picturesque cypress-edged Lake Hiawatha where you can observe seasonal wildflowers, a diversity of birdlife, colorful lizards, aquatic turtles, gopher tortoise burrows, and sinkholes. Visit the nearby McGowan Butterfly Garden, which provides food, water, and shelter for butterflies at each stage of their life cycle.
