Wellness in Big Cypress

January 22 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Keep Calm and Paddle On 

Do you need some fresh air? Are you someone who feels calm and rejuvenated while in the great outdoors? Escape the hustle and bustle of the city and join Ranger Megan from Big Cypress National Preserve for kayaking on the Turner River. Bring your own kayak and meet us for a day of fresh air. Let’s improve our health and wellness by slowing down and observing the plants and animals that call this beautiful place home. 8am-12:30pm

Serenity Swamp Walk 

Declutter your mind and be one with nature. Walking in nature improves mood, relaxation, and increases self-esteem. Frequent exposure to nature reduces anxiety and depression, while promoting a sense of well-being and fulfillment. Join Ranger Joe on a relaxing swamp walk focusing on the peaceful and calming sounds and sights of the swamp. Become entranced by the soothing rhythm of the water and the songs of the birds. 8:30 am-12:00 pm

Observe in the Preserve: An artistic walk through Big Cypress 

Nature is an inspiration for artists around the world. Using nature and art, we can escape from the stresses of everyday life. Join Ranger Danielle on a relaxing stroll through the preserve as we explore three different art forms: photography, poetry, and drawing. Through the blend of mindfulness and art, we can find ourselves capturing not only the beauty of nature, but also how we feel when we are surrounded by it. Come relax and see how Big Cypress National Preserve inspires you. 9:30 am-11:30 am
