The parking lot off Prosperity Farms Road will be closed beginning Monday, April 17, 2017 while crews work to repair/replace fencing at the site.  The parking lot will be used to stage equipment and materials in order to minimize impacts to wildlife within the property.  We are hopeful to have the parking lot re-opened by Saturday, April 29, 2017.

The wet, low-lying areas of this 172-acre natural area were once part of the headwaters of Lake Worth Creek, a meandering blackwater creek that flowed north to the Loxahatachee River. Over 500 animal and 200 plant species call this site home including great horned owl, red-bellied woodpecker, gopher tortoise, red-shouldered hawk, fish, wading bird, and manatee.
