Wakodahatchee Wetlands is not far from our home, so my husband and I go there often. His hobby is photography and he has gotten some breath taking photos at this wetlands. There are many large alligators, turtles, and so many different kinds of birds. There is a very sturdy, wide, wooden walkway out over the wetlands that offers an excellent... More

Very active preserve. Surprised at how close we were to wildlife (storks, egrets, red winged blackbirds, ibis, dragonflies, 4 types of turtles,,...). HUGE gator with 3'x2' head directly under us on boardwalk-watched him for 1 hr. Local said it was the largest he ever saw here! Recommend umbrella for shade. Couple of spots and a pavilion along the way provide... More

I have been coming here for more than 10 years. Depending on the time of year I am here dictates what types of wildlife I see. This past May (2014) I saw hundreds of storks nesting - feeding their young was an amazing sight. In one day I saw three alligators, several iguanas, rabbits, countless birds (storks, egrets, woodpeckers) and... More

Took are ride to the wetlands early one morning, did the full walk through and was amazed by how many birds there were. It was nesting season and all the locals said this was the best year in a very long time. Storks, Egrets, and many more. Every tree branch had a bird on it nesting. Also got a good... More

This was a great walk on a boardwalk with close up views of different herons and egrets and wood storks and other birds. Many were still babies in the nest or just starting to flap their wings. Also spotted several iguanas in the trees.

Bring your camera as you'll have plenty of personal photo opps with birds, turtles and fish. It's a raised boardwalk that takes you through a wetlands area. Keep in mind there are only a few shady spots - so bring a hat! It's a free way to see a more "native Florida" on your visit.

We have lived about 2 miles from here for 21 years. Nothing was around it when we first visited but it is now highly populated but this slice of wetlands remains a great place to see wildlife.

I spent 4 weeks in florida and drove all over visiting gardens and preserves, zoos etc. This was hands down the best thing I saw. I was on my way to miami and stopped at 5pm. This is a free activity. There are a series of boardwalks above the wetlands and at that time of day hundreds of birds were... More
