Residents here take the delicate balance of nature and its wildlife seriously, and encourage residents and visitors a like to join in an witness for themselves. The Sawgrass Nature Center & Wildlife Hospital is exactly what it sounds like; a rehabilitation center for injured and orphaned native wildlife as well as a facility to provide environmental education programs to the public. A great visit for adults any time of the year and for kids, too. If you're here long enough consider Camp Wild, an environmental cap for kids ages 6-12. Here participants enjoy each day of camp featuring new lessons, games, encounters with live animals and nature crafts. It's a great time and place for kids to overcome fears and learn to safely explore this unique part of Florida.
