The Florida Master Naturalist Class, Freshwater Wetlands, offered by The Cooperative Extension Service of Osceola County began February 15, 2011. Five classes are required. Eleanor Foerste and Captain Ray Robida are the Certified Instructors teaching this module.

Guide Kelly Wagner gave an excellent tour of Forever Florida to students participating in Florida Master Naturalist - Freshwater Wetlands class. Forever Florida is a 4,700 acre working horse and cattle ranch in Central Florida near Kissimmee since 1969. There are 9 distinct Florida eco-systems on site, making Forever Florida an excellent classroom for Master Naturalist training.

Forever Florida was the dream of Allen Broussard (1961 - 90). "Swamp" land previously sold in the 1960's to out-of-state investors as lots for residences is being purchased and used to preserve the historical Florida landscape. The Cracker Cattle, the original cattle introduced to North America here in Florida by Ponce deLeon in 1521, and cracker horses at Forever Florida are direct descendants of Ponce's second trip to Florida.
