Check Out CHEC - Alligator Creek

Welcome to Charlotte Harbor Environmental Center.  My name is Gayle and I will be your guide today.  Charlotte Harbor Environmental Center is a non-profit 501 (c)(3) corporation, established in 1987,  that provides environmental education, research and conservation lands management services. Click here to visit our website for more information about our facilities and programs. 

This is a short hike to the Caniff Visitor's Center that can be accessed any time of year.  It will familiarize you with the facilities here at Alligator Creek and a few of the common plants and animals you may encounter on our trails.  You may even see a Lubber Grasshopper (Romalea microptera) like the one in the picture.
