Boardwalk Tour Field Trip Activity 



Take a walk on the boardwalk trail and use your five senses to learn about our wetland habitat.  Look for wildlife tracks, smell flowers, and feel different textures in the environment.  Think about how animals use these same senses to find what they need to survive in this habitat.  How do animals in the Everglades find food, water, shelter, and air? Could they still find what they need to survive if humans changed the habitat?
