Okeeheelee Nature Center

Okeeheelee Nature Center The Okeeheelee Nature Center is a nice little museum of natural Florida.
There are aquariums and displays, rodents and reptiles - the last time I was
there they even had a little screech owl named Hootie! There's a wooden
boardwalk/porch that encircles the center, and the whole center is
wheelchair-accessible.

Nearly three miles of trails run through the adjacent 90 acres of woods, past
native flora and fauna (including deer!), at least one water skiing lake, and
(unfortunately, for a moment) Florida's Turnpike.

The center is located within Okeeheelee
Park
and is open Tuesday - Friday, 1:00-4:30; Saturday, 8:15-4:30; and
Sunday in September through May, 1:00-4:30. It is closed in on Monday. The
nature trails are open daily sunrise to sunset.
