Join a park ranger for a hike, paddle, swim, or talk to learn more about the unique environment and history of Long Key! Program topics will vary depending on the time of year and interest of the participants. You could be observing the plants and animals along the Golden Orb Nature Trail, exploring the seagrass beds in the ocean shallows, identifying shorebirds on the sandbars, or paddling through the mangroves along the coastline. In each program, a ranger will teach you interesting new facts or useful skills. Please contact the ranger station to inquire about weekly program topics and details.
Bring water, sunscreen, and bug repellant. For most programs, wear comfortable closed toe shoes that can get wet.
Some programs may require participants to provide their own equipment (kayaks, mask and snorkel, etc.).
