  • I was at the Green Cay Center for the first time to meet a friend. My friend suggested a walk and talk rather than eat and talk. I was delighted with the whole atmosphere which was a long bridge which went for a mile and a half. The walk itself was gentle exercise and it was quiet enough to have a conversation. The plant life on the water was robust and housed beautiful birds. There were helpful signs providing information about wildlife. My only regret was not bringing my field glasses. I will next time.
  • I absolutely love this sanctuary. The walk is a leisurely stroll through the wetlands with 1/2 mile and one mile loops to chose from. The wildlife viewing is phenomenal. There are so many bird species, alligators, insects etc. to see. It’s clear why this is a stop on the Great Florida Birding and Wildlife Trail. I see something new every time I come. I seem to lose all track of time on every visit as well. Blessings for a Happy 2021!
