The safari extends a special invitation to teachers and students (elementary, secondary, and upper levels) and all educational groups to take a field trip to Native Florida, and enjoy and exciting first-hand learning experience unlike any other. Special needs learners are also invited. The Safari offers rich tactile, visual, and aural educational settings.
Nature has provided us with a universal classroom here, and our goal is to provide you with the most harmonious educational enrichment program that you will find anywhere in Florida. Text books, slides, and film strips will never match the richness of a day or overnight adventure, watching the complex beauty of natural systems that coexist nowhere else on earth as they do in the Big Cypress. The brilliant red shouldered hawks that glide and dive across our morning sky are not computer generated, and our guides aren’t mechanical. They are all part of Native Florida.
It is no longer enough to tell our children that the ecology of Florida is unique. We have reached a point in human development where we must help them to identify their place in the natural cycles and teach them to respect the fragile balance that humans alone can destroy.
A visit to the Safari affords you the opportunity to inter-relate a maximum number of subjects in a setting highly conductive to learning. If your objective is to incorporate a curriculum resource with which your students can identify rapidly, and to maximize retention in a multi-disciplinary setting, Safari staff will be happy to work with you to arrange a program that fits your needs. The following Sunshine State Standard Benchmarks for Education can be achieved by visiting our park.
