Fishing is available throughout the preserve, subject to Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission regulations. Additional amenities include observation towers and platforms, picnic areas, and a visitors center. The new Mosaic Center for Nature, Exploration, Science and Technology (NEST) is open for specific programs and events. Nestled among trees and other plants, Mosaic NEST—designed to look like a giant treehouse—will host learners of all ages and invite them to explore nature in this one-of-its-kind classroom.
