Tower Complete!

The Francis Beidler Forest wildlife observation tower at Goodson Lake (farthest point on the boardwalk from the center) is now finished! The upper platform offers a better view to the downstream end of the lake where the alligators normally stay during visiting hours. Additionally, the higher viewing area cuts down on the sun's glare off of the water allowing visitors to see turtles more easily and to see fish that were all but invisible in the past.

The tower stop is sure to be a hit during next year's Wine & Warbler event on April 18, 2009.
