This week is all about celebrating our very own hometown heroes and protectors of the natural world we enjoy! The Coast Guard protects and rescues countless people living and working along the coast, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) conserves and manages Florida wildlife on land and sea, and the Department of Environmental Protection keeps Florida’s natural places beautiful and pristine. You’ll even get the chance to meet some of these heroes in person! We will help park rangers beautify the state park we enjoy, navigate the waterways they protect by canoe and kayak, identify the fish that live here and more!
Campers will have an opportunity to hear and learn from the members of the United State Coast Guard this week, as we take a short trip to their base at Mizell – Johnson State park!
