Conserving our planet's botanical resources and ecosystems

Amazing video tour of the Myakka Canopy Walkway

This Canopy Walkway is located just outside of Sarasota, FL in Myakka River State Park. The walkway is suspended 25 feet above the ground and extends 85 feet through the hammock canopy. A tower soars 74 feet in the air to present a spectacular view of treetops, wetlands, and the prairie/hammock interface. Completed in 2000, the structure was the first public treetop walkway in North America.
