Everglades Outpost
and the Zoological Wildlife
Foundation Experience
Friday, February 17
Coach departs at 9:00am and returns by 4:30pm
$165 Member | $215 Non-Member
We begin our day with a tour of the Everglades Outpost with a special demonstration by the amazing 18 year old Savi
Serrott, the youngest, and tiniest of Everglades Outpost’s alligator wrestlers and educators.
At Everglades Outpost in Homestead, Florida, volunteer and animal educator Savi Serrott spends her time with all kinds of animals. She works hands on with a
variety of species, one in particular not very common for eighteen-year-old-girls, alligators.
Serrott has worked with reptiles all her young life, and by taking part in the alligator shows at the outpost aims to spread awareness of the real-life dinosaurs. She
hopes to dismiss stigma towards the beasts as being scary and mean, and instead educate the public on how gators are in fact incredibly smart and majestic
creatures. Immediately
following will be an informative and educational talk with world renown wildlife biologist Joe Wasilewski.
Joe Wasilewski is a distinguished wildlife biologist specializing in the natural history of large reptiles within wetlands of southern Florida, the Caribbean, Latin
America and Africa. He is an active member of the International Union for the Conservation of Nature serving in both the Iguana Specialist Group as well as the
Crocodile Specialist Group. He serves as the consulting wildlife biologist for Florida Power & Light at their Turkey Point nuclear power plant, and consults in the
field on critically endangered species for governments and NGOs. Some of his recent projects include
developing and constructing nesting habitat for American crocodiles, a project he completed in December 2007 which
resulted in successful crocodile nesting in 2008. He is a frequent guest on television and has consulted for shows such as Animal Planet, National Geographic, the
Discovery Channel, the History Channel, and Florida Public Television, among others. He earned his undergraduate degree in Biology from Florida International
University.
After lunch at the White Lion Cafe we will journey to an incredible adventure at the Zoological Wildlife Foundation where you will get to interact with reptiles,
primates, small mammals & birds of prey. You’ll see and even hold many of their exotic animal ambassadors and even get up close enough to feed some of them.
An incredible experience!

Carousel
Sunday, February 12
Coach departs at 1:30pm and returns by 8:30pm
$165 Member | $215 Non-Member
The Tony Award winning Broadway musical Carousel is a powerful ride of hope and tears. With stunning
choreography and breathtaking music, Carousel was Rodgers and Hammerstein’s personal favorite of all their musicals, and was dubbed “the best musical of the
20th Century by Time Magazine. From the magical evocation of the carousel in the overture to the majestic and moving strains of the immortal song You’ll Never
Walk Alone, this giant of the musical stage remains timeless and star bright. The poignant and heartbreaking story of the faithful
Julie and her brutish husband Billy is one of the most powerful books in musical theatre history and perfectly matches its extraordinary score with the memorable
songs If I Loved You, June is Bustin’ Out All Over, and Billy Bigelow’s famous Soliloquy. Music by Richard Rodgers, Book and lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II,
Based on the play Liliom by
Ferenc Molnar as adapted by Benjamin F. Glazer
After the show, we will enjoy dinner at Season’s 52 in Coral Gables.
