At Royal Palm...
Rangers lead students and teachers on exploratory walks through four different habitats: the freshwater slough, sawgrass prairie, pine rocklands, and tropical hardwood hammock. Students have the opportunity to observe alligators, birds, turtles, and fish in their natural habitats.
Students are encouraged to compare the many similarities and differences between the habitats. Rangers challenge students to think about their own connections to this unique place.

A brand new publication! This guide will assist teachers with pre-site activities, and has all the information a teacher needs for providing the best field-trip and learning experience. This guide has active hotlinks to other relevent sites.
