Perhaps the fastest growing activity on National Wildlife Refuges is wildlife photography. A photo blind for public use is located near McDowell Marsh; access is from the McDowell Marsh Environmental Education Trail at River Camp. Your vehicle also serves as an excellent photo blind.  Some wildlife may behave aggressively if they feel threatened; maintain a safe distance and minimize disturbance.

If you get some great photos and don't mind sharing them, email them to us and if we can use them on our website we will be sure you credit you.
