Orlando Wetlands Park in the news
To the vacationer in search of a different side of Orlando, a huge draw for visitors are the thousands of miles of protected wetlands. Though most are familiar with the Everglades as the largest wetland in Florida, the smaller lesser known areas around Orlando are also great places to experience for the eco traveler.
One such wetland making the news in recent months is the Orlando Wetlands Park. Located in Christmas, Florida, the Orlando Wetlands Parks is making headlines for it’s innovations in water treatment. A 1,200 acre park, filled with alligators, frogs and a host of plant species is actually mostly comprised of treated waste-water.
The EPA is working on making stricter regulations throughout Florida on the protection of not only the wetlands but water in general and the Orlando Wetlands Park appears to be leading the way in its protection of this valuable resource.
Florida’s geography and location make it an ideal habitat for wetlands and the animals and plants that require this type of area in order to survive. With the advent of ecotourism and a concern for the environment, Orlando and indeed all of Florida have a unique resource to offer eco travelers.
For the vacationer willing to head into these sometimes dangerous areas, Orlando’s wetlands offer a great way to experience a wilder side of the area. Ecotours found around Orlando include hang gliding 2,000 feet in the area, hot air balloons rides, bi-plane rides, and over 2000 lakes, rivers and springs found throughout the area. Kayaking, canoeing, air boat rides and safaris as well as diving and scuba tours allow visitors the opportunity experience the wilderness of this unique state as well.
Each of these experiences will allow you to experience the wilder side of Florida, the side of Orlando that many visitors miss. Gaining in popularity, there are a number of services which can provide you with the perfect eco tour of the area that you are looking for. Cypress Lake Airboat Tours, Big Toho Airboat Rides, Boggy Creek’s Wildlife Safari and Fun 2 Dive Scuba and Snorkeling Tours are just some of the smaller attractions that can offer you a different look at Orlando.
