Florida is a diverse landscape with a variety of habitats. Across the state there are sixty-nine ecosystems recognized by the Florida Natural Areas Inventory (FNAI) and these fall into six categories. These categories are: interior uplands, wetlands, and waters; and coastal uplands, wetlands, and water. The Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary's boardwalk takes you through a sampling of some of these habitats that are protected within it's 13,000 acres. But beyond the boardwalk, land is managed and preserved for now and for the generations to come.
