Swampy's Florida celebrates World Ranger Day!

Swampy’s Florida celebrates World Ranger Day!

Today is #WorldRangerDay! Florida is full of incredible rangers that run our parks system. One of Swampy’s favorites is the park biologist for the Fakahatchee Strand Preserve State Park, Mike Owen. Mike is a wonder in South Florida. Mike not only is an expert of what exists in the swamp, but has an incredible sense of humor that makes any time with him a great deal of fun. He takes many. many groups through the wonderous world of the cypress swamps. He’s known to holler “Whooteehooooo!” during his swampy hikes and the call typically has his tour join in for a wilderness chorus.
