Lake Hancock Outfall Wetlands
The Lake Hancock Outfall Wetlands, on the south side of Lake Hancock, is a restricted-access SWFWMD property that requires a permit for entry. It's always fun to get to go there! You can find a wide variety of species, which is a little unusual for inland Central Florida.
Look for occasional field trips into this restricted-access property. Take your longest lens. The birds are usually far away.
