People of all ages can have a great time exploring the Big Cypress with their families and friends. If you are new to the Preserve participating in any one of our regularly scheduled ranger programs is a great way to discover what's here. You can take a stroll along one of our trails or visit one of the wildlife viewing areas in search of some amazing animals. Many families enjoy camping and fishing in the area. With a little work, kids can even become a Junior Ranger!
