We had only a couple of hours and received a good overview of the mangroves there outside the nature center. The view from the tower was fantastic. And the walk out to the lake was most interesting.

My five year old and I had a great time! You get to see hundreds of crabs in the mangroves! Awesome!

If you just want to relax and get away from the hustle and bustle, just take a walk on the boardwalk along the water.

This is a great place to simply come and observe the natural world in south Florida. The pathways are clean and well maintained, there are numerous viewpoints and a gazebo overlooking the water. If you are looking to experience quiet nature in the midst of a city, come visit here. Highly recommended.

This is a very quiet, relaxing and beautiful spot; a natural oasis in a busy place. It is super clean and just so nice to stroll the walkways and observe this natural habitat and look for the wildlife that depend on the Mangrove trees and vice versa for survival. The boat ride was a bargain for $5 and very informative... More

This was an enjoyable ride, although nothing was said about Anne Kolb herself, assuming we all knew who she was. It was interesting about the trees and how they got there. Walking through the trees was fantastic and looking at all the different fish and crabs.

This place is wonderful for those naturlist that truly enjoy learning about the natural environment. This one specializes in mangroves. I learned so much that I didn't know about mangroves. The views from the observation tower where awesome. The boat tour was well worth the cost and the captain was very informative. Saw many live birds and critters. All the... More
