We got to see great colors from the color wheel today!! We took the tram, which costs $2 extra, and we got to visit all the colorful spots. Walking/hiking and bike riding is possible, but we chose the guided tram ride since it was our first visit. The Education Center is fantastic as well. There were live animals, interactive displays, observation areas, books, and things to touch. This place is on our short list, and almost took the favorite slot! It’s the only Preserve we’ve been to that charges admission—$3 adults, $1.50 children—but there’s no parking fee. There is also a bird of prey sanctuary and animal encounters on the weekends. We didn’t have time for the playground!
A pine cone next to an eaten pine cone. Don’t take them home with you because they are food for creatures!
Poison Ivy, which is still itchy when it’s dead!
American Turkey Oak
Painted Leaf. Wild poinsettias!
Sand Live Oak, which has curved leaves for water conservation.
Great Horned Owl
Florida King Snake Pinellas County subspecies
The kids are working on some Owl art. Can’t wait to see it!
