The opportunities for you to inform your children about earth-friendliness are exceptional on the Paradise Coast. Professionally run programs at area resorts and organizations are designed to inform as well as entertain your children and assist you in helping them become successful stewards of the environment.
Better still, while children are engaged in a rewarding green learning experience, parents can take a break, relax and immerse themselves in some of the Paradise Coast’s other enticing pastimes. Beach, spa or gourmet dining, anyone? Children's Programs
The Nature's Wonders program, offered at The Ritz-Carlton, Naples
and The Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort, Naples
, provides exciting and stimulating hands-on, interactive learning in nature-themed activities like nature walks, boat rides, guest speakers and field trips such as a sail through the mangrove islands and an excursion to the zoo. Led by the resort's team of certified Master Naturalists, the program begins at an on-site laboratory where nine aquariums offers a spectacular look at Florida’s ecosystems and two touch tanks allow children to hold live turtles and starfish.
Take a tram through a mangrove forest as part of the Naples Grande Kids Club program for guests at Waldorf Astoria
and nearby Edgewater Beach Hotel. On the three-quarter mile trip kids discover numerous bird species and other marine life that call this pristine coastal setting home. Nature walks throughout the resort properties are another eco-highlight of the program.
All of the area’s resort children’s programs incorporate activities and information about the beach and the area environment, for a combination of fun and learning.
