Celebrate Nature Tour
Spend the morning at Lake Kissimmee State Park in Lake Wales, featuring more than 50 species of endangered, threatened, rare or special-concern animals. The Cow Camp at Lake Kissimmee recreates ranch life in Central Florida during the 1800s. After lunch, visit the Caloosa Nature Trail located at the Babson Park Audubon Center. The Center is located in the middle of the Lake Wales Ridge on three-and-one-half acres of the Longleaf/Sandhill community. This desert-like ecosystem contains many plants and animals found nowhere else in the world. End your day with dinner in historic Lake Wales.
After breakfast, arrive at Circle B-Bar Reserve and Polk’s Nature Discovery Center in Lakeland where visitors are encouraged to explore the mysteries of the 1,267 acres. A tremendous bird population, including a variety of wading birds, waterfowl, ospreys and bald eagles make their homes here. Alligators inhabit Lake Hancock and may be observed from a distance. Guided trails provide educational excursions into the world of nature. Travel to Winter Haven and enjoy lunch then visit the Street Audubon Center visitor center to learn of the different bird species native to this area.
