Thanksgiving is a uniquely American tradition that is commonly dated back to the 17thcentury when the first pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock, Massachusetts and shared a meal with the Wampanoags.

The Spanish admiral kissed a cross held aloft by the fleet’s captain, Father Francisco Lopez, then claimed Florida for both his God and his country. As curious members of the indigenous Timucua tribe looked on, the 800 newly arrived colonists gathered around a makeshift

In recognition of Thanksgiving, today’s fun fact is this: Benjamin Franklin was not a fan of the bald eagle being our national bird, and he preferred it the turkey.

“For my own part, I wish the Bald Eagle had not been chosen the Representative of our Country. He is a Bird of bad moral Character. He does not get his Living honestly.

It’s officially manatee season! From November 15th until March 31st, manatees begin moving south for warmer waters as air and water temperatures drop.

When the weather is cold, a majority of manatees can be found gathering in the warm water outflows of Florida Power & Light’s Eco-Discovery Center, Manatee Lagoon.
