Epcot’s Fresh from Florida Weekend 2010 – Camp Bayou

July 26, 2010

Camp Bayou Outdoor Learning Center joined us at the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival this year. What an interesting place!

Located at 4140 24th Street SE in Ruskin, Florida (near Tampa), Camp Bayou is a 160-acre nature preserve.  The mission of the facility is to promote local culture and history through the natural resources in the area.  It is a public-private partnership which has a lot of opportunities for visitors.  You can visit the Nature Center, walk along the trails and see the native wildlife and vegetation, paddle a canoe, and even take classes about the resources.

If you’re looking for a family-friendly activity, check out Camp Bayou Outdoor Learning Center.  Admission is free.  There may be a small fee for some of the classes, but there are so many things to do and you can get in touch with nature right in Central Florida.

    And the Association of Florida Native Nurseries (AFNN) welcomes Camp Bayou as a nonprofit supporting members, providing hands-on education for Hillsborough County REAL FLORIDA GARDENERS! Go native!
