Things to See

Lake Okeechobee -  Lake Okeechobee is the second largest freshwater lake in the country and arguably the best bass fishing lake as well. Bass thrive here due to the abundance of the forage and cover offered, as all types of grasses are spread throughout, giving the bass plenty of places to hide and rest. Other fish in this lake are crappie, bluegill and pickerel.
Arnold's Wildlife Rehabilitation Center, Inc - (AWRC) is a non-profit 501(c) educational-based wildlife care facility.  We are dedicated to bringing people and wildlife together to develop a community awareness of the value of our Florida wildlife.  Our ultimate goal is to rescue, rehabilitate, and return recovered animals to their natural habitat. Unfortunately, some of these animals have sustained injuries that limit their return to the wild. In these cases we have set up habitats for them to stay with us for the remainder of their lives.  There is no admission but donations are graciously accepted to sustain this great facility.
Taylor Creek Stormwater Treatment Area (SFWMD) 7201 Hwy 441 N is designated for hiking and bicycling (3 miles).   Stormwater Treatment Areas (STAs) are constructed wetlands that remove and store nutrients through plant growth and the accumulation of dead plant material that is slowly converted to a layer of peat soil. The key purpose of STAs is to remove phosphorus from urban and agricultural runoff flowing into the Everglades. Nature-based public use including bicycling, hiking, nature photography and bird-watching is allowed.
