Event Description

Little Blue Heron

The Orlando Wetlands Park is a man-made wetland designed to provide advanced treatment for reclaimed water from the City of Orlando and other local cities. The Park is 1650 acres in size and located in Christmas, Florida. The Orlando Wetlands Park is open to the public for passive recreation use. We will be walking the extensive dike system. Prepare to walk +/- 3 miles. The walking is level and easy. On dry days tennis shoes are comfortable. If there is rain before the outing, you might consider something a little more substantial. We will meet for carpooling in Port Orange. You are welcome to drive directly to the venue.

FYI: Access to the Education Center and cart tours have resumed. Tours are on a first come, first served basis and weather permitting. Guests from different parties will be asked to sit one seat apart from other parties if riding on the same cart. Visitors are required to wear masks while inside the Education Center and to practice social distancing. Carts will be disinfected between tours. For more information specific to the park and cart availability, please check the website below. If you desire to tour by cart, it is your responsibility check availability and reserve a spot

Bring water, snacks, sun protection, good walking shoes and especially a spotting scope if you have one. Some folks pack a lunch to eat at the available picnic tables after the walk. It is amazing how many species we see while munching and chatting.
