Engage with our outdoor exhibits to learn about landscaping, indigenous wild life and the Caloosahatchee River. Check out our Backyard Nature exhibit and short walking path to learn about sustainable options for landscaping and the right plants to choose for the unique environments and wildlife of Florida!

Don’t miss the Caloosahatchee Experience while you are outside. This exhibit currently features an aquarium with Lake Okeechobee inhabitants, including American alligators! You will also find a boat building water table that simulates the Caloosahatchee river past and present.

Moving on to the wood planked walk ways, you will find Fisheye Lagoon, home to migrating birds, geese, and ducks as well as many aquatic residents! You can feed Japanese Koi, Carp, Bluegill, Catfish, and a variety of turtles as you enjoy the peaceful scenery.
