IGFA: International Game Fish Association
At IGFA the students did a lab which included learning about the different fish and the different
habitats. They also learn about the evolutionary changes that fishes go through. Then they take a tour of their

Gumbo Limbo is located in Boca Raton, Florida at Red Reef Park on the barrier island between
the Atlantic Ocean and the Intracoastal Waterway. Twenty acres of Boca Raton's Red Reef park have been reserved specifically
for a nature center and the preservation of a natural plant association known as a tropical hammock. The marine and estuarine
location, and the diversity of native vegetation communities found within Red Reef park, also include the coastal dune, a
sabal palm hammock and a mangrove wetlands. Interesting faunal species include a variety of mammals, birds, reptiles and fish.
Rare and endangered species such as the manatee, the brown pelican, the osprey and sea turtles can often be observed on or
from the facility. Coastal relics like a shell midden from the Pre-Columbian Indians and Pond Apple trees from the original
freshwater body (known as the Spanish River) can be seen. A cannon and anchors have also been found on the shore of Red Reef
park. All these assets give Gumbo Limbo a unique blend of living history.
