About Neighborhood Naturalist

The natural environmental is truly amazing!

 

Neighborhood Naturalist is an educational program that educates youth on the wonders of the natural Florida environment at Lake Lorna Doone Park in Orlando, Florida. Led by our professional Naturalist, Ana Zuccarini, children can play fun games, make eco-art, and tour the natural Florida environment.

 

This program is supported by the Arnold & Winnie Palmer Foundation, thank you!
