$6 per vehicle for up to 8 people.
Tell the ranger at the entrance that you are there for the dipnetting program so they can direct you to Sand Lake.
Join park staff and Friends of the Wekiva River volunteers at the water's edge to learn more about what lives beneath the waterline. With dipnets and containers in hand, participants will probe the shoreline for small fish, tadpoles, and macro invertebrates or insects living in the water. This program is suitable and fun for all ages.
A short walk across soft sand will bring participants to the edge of Sand Lake where there are benches to sit and rest while dipnets are in action. Participants will not be getting into the water, but clothes and shoes that can get a little wet or muddy are best. Remember that drinking water, sun protection, and insect repellant are always a good idea at the park
Due to limited shoreline and nets, this program will be offered to the first 25 participants.
