Manatee Viewing Center is 2.5 mi. w. of I-75 exit 246 (Big Bend Rd.) at 6990 Dickman Rd. The center is across the warm-water discharge canal from the Tampa Electric Big Bend power plant and features an observation platform for manatee watching and a movie about manatees. Other displays cover Florida yard landscaping, power plant and solar generation and by-product recycling. A nature trail provides closer glimpses of native plants and wildlife.
