Nature Walk

A walking tour in the Ten Thousand Islands National Wildlife Refuge showcases the rich biodiversity and stunning natural beauty of this coastal ecosystem in southwest Florida. The salt marsh is characterized by a mix of tall cordgrass, black needlerush and other salt-tolerant plants. The mangroves act as a vital nursery for various marine species and serve as a buffer against storm surges. Keep an eye out for wading birds such as herons and egrets. An elevated scenic overlooks provides panoramic views of the mangrove islands and salt marshes.
