- Woodland Critters: butterflies, lizards, armadillos, raccoons, possums, tortoises, rabbits, deer, and bobcats.
- Enjoy your Saltwater Destination – a nature preserve of cliffs, dunes, sand bars, tidal waters, oyster reefs, marshes, and sheltered coves.
- Marine Critters: fiddler crabs, dolphins, river otters, manta rays, tarpon, ospreys, wood storks, egrets and others.
- Hear how Timucuan Indians used native resources for food, shelter, medicines, clothing, jewelry, tools, weapons, and caffeine.
