The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) has reopened Banana Grove Road, the boat ramp entrance road and the campground at the Fisheating Creek Wildlife Management Area (WMA).

These areas were temporarily closed last week because of high water levels at the WMA.



FWC Facts:
Manatees can travel up to 50 miles in a day. They generally swim slowly but have been clocked at speeds of up to 15 mph for short bursts.
