Lake Apopka is in the headwaters of the Ocklawaha River and has been the site of significant marsh and floodplain restoration and the creation of a marsh flow-way system that filters Lake Apopka’s waters by circulating lake water through restored wetlands. The wildlife drive meanders for 11 miles through the eastern portion of the property. Meet trip leader Bob Carroll in the Target Parking lot on Archer Rd. to explore this birding hotspot.

Difficulty: 1 (trip within easy access to vehicle and/or level terrain one mile or less).
