What: Fakahatchee Strand Preserve State Park   by Jack Berninger

The Fakahatchee is the only neo-tropical park in continental US. It is the orchid/fern capital of our country. Many rare and endangered plants and animals can be seen in the park. It is a true swamp walk to see many of these organisms. Once you have visited, many catch what we call the Fakahatchee Fever, which makes you want to return many times. Jack Berninger’s program will introduce everyone to this wonderful area of the Everglades region.

Short Bio: Jack is a retired Biology teacher who spends his time still educating people on the wonderful and exciting flora and fauna of the Cincinnati and Everglades Regions. Various programs and hikes are conducted for Audubon, Fernald, Astronomical groups, Stone/Douglass Festival, Naples Nature Preserves and other wildlife groups in the above locations.
