As the seasons change in South Florida, long sunny days have given way to cool starry nights. The winter solstice is tomorrow, December 21, and it will be the shortest day of the year in terms of sunlight – and the longest night.
The South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) offers many opportunities for you to enjoy the shorter days of the winter season and experience the beauty of the night sky on District-managed lands.
Did you know the SFWMD is the steward for more than one million acres of public lands, including many popular stargazing locations?
The SFWMD team routinely enhances and expands the recreational activities that are available on SFWMD lands from Orlando to the Florida Keys. Whether you are an avid adventurer or you just want to enjoy the outdoors, you will find activities for all ages and skill levels.
Here are some of the ways you can enjoy SFWMD lands throughout Florida’s changing seasons:
