Today I am proud to say that I completed the University of Florida Master Naturalist Program. This program consists of three modules - Coastal Systems, Upland Habitats and Wetland Systems. Each module is 40 contact hours including field trips, interpretive talks in the field and classroom work. I chose to do a plant field guide for my final project. You can see the field guide in the pictures above. I am relieved to have this behind me, now it's time to RELAX and EXPLORE!
Immerse in an ECO-Tour and Experience Southwest Florida Islands by Boat
“Captain Brian Holaway is well versed in the intricacies of our unmatched locale. He can guide to and through a multitude of out-of-the way tidal creeks, bayous, keys and islands. More important is his passionate interest and respect for the region. With unique insights from his many explorations and his studies, not only does he identify the birds and wildlife that inhabit our semi-tropical watery land, but he explains their interconnectedness to their environment and each other. In addition, he shares the fascinating history of rugged people who came long before us: Florida Native Indians, the Calusa, the Spanish, the Cubans, early homesteaders, and the wisdom evident in the growth of their culture.
You will come away with great enjoyment and a new understanding of this beautiful place and its history.”
