What is the eNaturalist program?
The eNaturalist program is Broward County Parks’ way of bringing nature to you; wherever you are. Our eNature Tours provide users with a video- and audio-guided tour through natural areas while the Website has a variety of educational resources for nature lovers of all ages.
Our eNaturalist guided eNature Tour at Tall Cypress Natural Area utilize QR (quick response) codes along the trail to enhance your visit with videos about the nature beyond the boardwalk. Two more eNaturalist locations that will be introduced will be Hillsboro Pineland Natural Area on July 26 from 9 to 11 a.m. and Woodmont Natural Area on August 30 from 9 to 11 a.m.
These tours are also accessible to the blind and visually impaired by use of braille signage.
Tablet or Cell Phone?
You can use either! Our videos are made to be accessed via cellphone or tablet with cellular connection.
Bring the outdoors inside with a visit to our eLearning Center which is packed with fun and interesting facts that explore all things nature. Find rainy day excitement at the eCritters Corner with interactive games, coloring pages, and more.
Students and Teachers?
Head over to our eNaturalist Tour Videos Webpage to watch our eNaturalist eco-videos and share them with your class, indoors or out!

Students can take a tour of the park guided by our eNaturalist, and expand on the video topics at our outdoor “learning centers” along the path.
