Babcock Ranch Eco Tours is an organization that offers a few different Florida wildlife and nature tours. We offer a 90-minute swamp buggy tour, self-guided walking tours, and specialty tours. But did you know that we offer group and educational tours?

Our tours are catered to individuals and families, but we’ve created our group and educational tour program in order to provide a resource for group leaders and teachers to bring their students here to learn all about Florida’s nature and wildlife. We’re wild about wildlife, and we want to share that with you!

Below are a few reasons why you could consider bringing your classroom or group on a Florida wildlife tour at Babcock Ranch Eco Tours.

Students Get Up Close Encounters

Students will likely learn about Florida nature and wildlife in school through textbooks or online. But we think that getting up close and personal is an even better way for students to learn.

At Babcock Ranch Eco Tours, our guests encounter several animals, including:

  • American Alligator
  • Cows
  • Wild turkeys
  • Birds
  • And more!

During our group Florida wildlife tours, we can create a private tour that caters to what needs to be learned. We’ll match you with a guide who has expansive knowledge in the area you’d like to learn more about to ensure that you and your students can get the most out of your group wildlife tour.

Access to Knowledgeable Guides

If you read our reviews on Google or TripAdvisor, you will see that the best parts of our tours are our guides!

Our guides hold endless knowledge on Florida’s plants, animals, and ecosystems. Many of our tour guides are Florida born and raised, and they’ve spent countless hours on our tours. If you plan to bring your group or classroom out for a wildlife tour, be sure to have your questions ready!

Time Outdoors

Last year, Covid-19 threw us all for a loop. Between schools getting canceled and every type of event moving to an online space, kids and teens were probably the most susceptible to isolation from being indoors during Covid-19.

As we know, spending time outdoors and interacting with nature has plenty of benefits, and being outside for a class field trip to learn about Florida wildlife is a perk of coming back to school.
