Discover Nature Lee State Park

Lee State Park’s educational focus is building a foundation for long-term protection of the natural resources of the State Scenic Lynches River and its associated hardwood floodplain forest. Students who visit Lee State Park sample water from the Lynches River and associated wetlands. Here they discover aquatic organisms, investigate water quality, debate water issues and develop data collection and analysis skills.
