We were at FIU for a dance competition and had some spare time and decided to take a walk though here. Well, we didn't want to leave. It was absolutely bucolic in there and a quiet respite and enclave in the city on this lovely campus. Lots of ways to go and things to see. Enjoy yourself and take a walk in nature.

Though this nature preserve has been open to the public for decades, most in Dade County are unaware of it's existence. Surrounded by development like an island of foliage, this preserve contains a number of natural habitats: Pine Rocklands, Tropical Hardwood Hammocks, and Freshwater Wetlands. I was expecting to be through the whole preserve in a matter of minutes, but 30 minutes later I was still hiking the shaded trails. Just when you think you've reached the end, the trails continue to more habitats. It is hard to believe that you are surrounded by civilization, as just a few feet into the preserve, you can almost imagine being deep in the Florida Everglades. In addition to the trails, there is a lake on the West side which has a plentiful population of aquatic plants on it's shoreline including pond apples and cattails. I saw a variety of wildlife while exploring the preserve for less than an hour including: gray squirrel, brown & bark anole lizards, anhinga, spiny box spider, mockingbird, skipper butterfly, bull ant, and mosquito fish. Though admission is free and open to the public, nearby parking is at paid meters. I will definitely keep returning.
