From Macro to Micro: Focusing on Nature Series
Broward County > Parks and Recreation > Things To Do > From Macro to Micro: Focusing on Nature Series


From large to small, this series focuses on species of all sizes. Each program features a guided tour of the location, along with in-depth discussions on the subject and a comparison of species found in habitat types along the way. The first two sessions deal with birds, the second two sessions are about flowering plants, and the final two sessions feature insects. Participants will learn how to identify both common and rare species as they explore our natural areas.

Saturdays, from 9 to 10 a.m.

For ages 10 and up.

Fee is $5 per program or $25 for a Series Pass.

Space is limited to 15 participants per hike. Preregistration and prepayment are required by calling Quiet Waters Park at 954-357-5100 or registering online.
