Swamp Buggy Excursion at Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary

Join us for special swamp buggy excursions at Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary. 

On these educational excursions we will travel by swamp buggy at the north end of Corkscrew Sanctuary.  We will traverse several habitat types through a portion of the Corkscrew Watershed with a Corkscrew Naturalist as your guide.  We will learn about the importance of this 13,000 + acre Sanctuary and its habitats for birds and other wildlife, and about the land management that is done to maintain diveristy.  We will stay on the lookout for wildlife sightings including the many birds of the back country, alligators, turtles, and maybe more!

These excursions last approximately 3 hours.  Participants must be able to climb a step ladder to board the buggy.  Participants must sign a liability waver.
