We brought the kids and everyone had a great time. The boardwalk made it easy to keep track of my little wild-child! LOL It was a great way to spend the day.

We spent a relaxed couple of hours meandering around the boardwalks of the preserve and in the visitors centre. The boardwalk makes for easy and enjoyable access across the Slough giving great close up views of the wildlife. During our visit we saw and heard a mother wild boar and her piglets running through the trees, a snake, turtles and many different birds including a limpkin, wood ducks, anhingas, egrets, herons and several passerines. Along the boardwalk there are several viewing platforms and lots of information boards.

This was my first visit. We had some visitors who were casual “birders” so thought they might enjoy it. I’d go on a weekday if possible. There is ample parking. Guided tours are available by volunteers who are very knowledgeable, and are free. There are lots of opportunities to get beautiful pictures of wildlife so bring a camera! The boardwalk makes it easy to access the views and is marked with placards that explain various aspects of the slough. Well worth the trip to see the real “wild” side of Florida.

Nice place to spend a few hours on a nice day. Parking is $5 all day or $1hr. You could spend an hour or so in the center on visual and hands on displays. A very well maintained board walk about 1 1/2 miles long with rest stops and displays ever 75_100 yards with many wildlife viewing opportunities ranging from small birds and mammals to rodents and alligators. Scheduled tours are available.
