My World Tuesday: SEEP Nature Trails

One Sunday we decided to check out the walking trails in the University of Florida Natural Area Teaching Laboratory (NATL).  It is a 60 acre tract on the UF Campus. We took the trail through the Stormwater Ecological Enhancement Project (SEEP) stormwater retention basin. SEEP began as a course project for Ecosystems of Florida. It is maintained by the Wetlands Club.

  1. Babooshka: This was taking in January so it isn’t really changing seasons but it is interesting.

    Swarma: They have the area divided in different sections and I tried to show that.

    Alicesg, Geogypsy & Kacy: TY it was a fun day. Didn’t see much wildlife.

    Antigoni: I’m very afraid of snakes that is due to all the snakes, mostly rattlers found in our yard back home in Texas. I’ve only seen 1 snake since we moved here. Alligators can be near any body of water but this area is pretty safe. We stayed on the walking trails.

  2. There’s a place sort of like this in my hometown too, but I’ve never actually explored it. Wetlands are vital ecosystems, and it’s good to see an educational effort being made here!
