Visiting the Preserve on a day other than Saturday?  We encourage self-guided tours using the interpretive signage along our trails. 

Check back soon for more resources and trail guides for download during your visit.


Firefly tours

One of our most popular visitor programs at the Preserve, these tours are scheduled during the spring and summer months when fireflies are most plentiful.  

Be sure to check our Program and Event calendar for upcoming tours so you can register in advance (they fill up quickly). 


Paddle Tours

Another popular visitor program is our Lake Apopka paddle tours.  Thanks to support from Duke Energy, we will soon be offering kayaks for rental during our guided tour around various parts of the lake. 

Check our Program and Event calendar for upcoming tours so you can register in advance (they fill up quickly, too). 


QR Codes

Throughout the Preserve you will find interpretive signs with QR code technology. 

We will soon have additional information available on our site to connect visitors with more information on their self-guided tours.
