DesertDale took me on a bird walk to the Oasis Visitors Center. It is one fanatic site for "bird watching", plus other wild life.
Big Cypress has two visitor stations that has much information & orientation, issuing permits, gift shop other services. They are open year-round.
Both facilities are midway between Miami and Naples along the Tamiami Trail.
The Oasis Boardwalk near Naples is the one DesertDale and Kitfoxgal went on. It was will worth every step we took. DesertDale had a field day, where he took over 260 photos of wild life in the area.
There are guided hikes, canoe trips, boardwalks, and evening programs put on by the staff and volunteers at the center.
This was a visitor at the "Friends of Fakahatchee" site , when we did bird watching at that sight.
Hope you enjoy this posting as much as I enjoyed being there. Kitfoxgal
