  • Late winter to spring, the place has many species of migrating birds. And a lot of birding photo opportunities. This is the time of year you can see the beautiful roseate spoonbills, the rare reddish ...  more »

  • One of the top Birding hot spots in Florida, especially in the winter. But even in the summer you can find something wonderful, like this White Morph Reddish Egret
  • Beautiful drive and preserve. I'm very glad it exists. Unfortunately, in June there isn't much to see here. Viera Wetlands is *much* more active.
  • I really didn't see much wide life but went in the afternoon. Figure the $10.00 just translated into a donation.
  • We really enjoyed this drive! We wish we could have seen more nature but I think due to time of day and weather most of the animals were not around. Also, I am sure the wildlife would be much better here during the migratory season! Either way the drive was still wonderful! There were a few small trails with observation decks/observation tower that we really enjoyed. The scenery was beautiful even without seeing birds and animals. It was nice to see different types of lands (swamps, meadows, pinewood flats, etc.)
  • Absolutely the best Wildlife experience we had in Florida. Wonderful drive and we saw over 20 species of water birds. There are signs clearly marking when it's a point you should see birds which made it very easy to spot so many beautiful birds. The drive is about 30-45 mins if you go right through and there are little side pull off spots so you can get out of your car and observe. Totally recommend this drive as a must do when visiting the area.
