SFWMD: Expanding and enhancing recreational activities on lands they manage

Here is extensive information from the South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) on the recreational activities open to the public to enjoy.
     Hiking, fishing, camping, bird-watching, horseback riding, nature study, cycling, hunting, geocaching, stargazing – what's your pleasure?
     The South Florida Water Management District is the steward for more than 1 million acres of public land. Over the years, we've taken great strides to expand public recreational opportunities on land purchased with public dollars – and it keeps getting better.
     Each year we take steps to enhance and expand recreational use of all District-owned property throughout our 16-county region. Activities at each location are compatible with natural resources protection and intended land use priorities.
    We invite you to explore recreational opportunities on your public lands.
 Here is the Discover Florida Wild page on the VisitFlorida tourism site. For residents and tourists alike there is so much to do and see in Florida.
