Six Mile Cypress Slough (pronounced "slew") Preserve has over a mile of boardwalk trail that weaves around a beautiful 2,500 acre wetlands preserve. If your lucky, you'll spy alligators, a variety of birds, snakes, turtles, wild pigs and maybe even a bobcat! ...been there twice and have never seen one...if I did, I'd probably run up a tree screaming.
On today's adventure we saw two large gators sunning themselves, a baby alligator floating on a log, and lots of turtles and birds.
Throughout the boardwalk trail you'll run across beautiful quotes embossed on plaques. I especially like this one...
You'll also occasionally see animal tracks stamped into the wood planks that lead to a description and picture of the animal they belong to. Cool! Logan really enjoyed this.
This place is AH-mazing ...and is FREE! It's run by Friends of the Six Mile Cypress Slough Preserve, a not-for-profit advocacy and support organization dedicated to preserving, protecting and promoting the preserve.
