Weedon Island Preserve is a historic area occupied by people for thousands of years. The numerous shell mounds have yielded chert spearheads and imprinted pottery. In 2011 archaeologists excavated a 40-foot-long pine dugout canoe, carbon-dated from AD 690 to 1010. The marked paddling route traces a wonderful journey through shallow lagoons and mangrove tunnels, where mullet leap and osprey fish. You may see dolphins and manatees in the deeper water and will surely observe a variety of wading birds along the edges of the mangroves. Look for stingrays in shallow water against the sandy bottom and for reddish egrets and roseate spoonbills. A 2-mile boardwalk trail with a 45-foot observation tower, starting at the Weedon Island Preserve Cultural and Natural History Center, makes a wonderful complement to the paddling trip, or a pleasant alternative if the tide or weather precludes paddling. You may spot armadillos, raccoons, gopher tortoises, and snakes in addition to the many birds.
