Earth Day was first celebrated back in 1970 and since then, it has become an annual celebration in which more than 500 million people across the globe have participated in. Every year on April 22, populations around the world honor and raise awareness to the health of our planet. It is truly a day to appreciate nature and be thankful for the beauty that surrounds us.
This year, make Earth Day a memorable occasion by embarking on an Orlando airboat wildlife tour! Take a look as we explore the many reasons that this unique experience provides a perfect way to spend Earth Day.
There is no better place to experience the beauty of our planet than through airboat rides in Central Florida. In fact, Lake Jesup is home to some of Florida’s most unique wildlife, including more alligators and more species of birds than any other lake in Florida!
At The Black Hammock, we offer a variety of packages to choose from for your Earth Day celebration. Go on a short 30 minute ride to see the views or take an hour long ride to really observe and commune with the natural world around you. As you zip around Lake Jesup aboard our state of the art airboats, you’ll have the opportunity to view Florida vegetation and spot amazing wildlife such as alligators, various species of birds, wild boars, and more!
