While protecting and preserving Palm Beach County's ecological treasures, ERM's hard work also provides a place & space to be active OUTDOORS!
ERM maintains 16 miles of public beaches that erode away due to natural sand movement and from storm related events so that we all have a place to go to bask in the sun, play in the sand, or swim in the surf.
ERM restores aquatic habitats that enhance fishing for saltwater and freshwater anglers. From deep sea fishing while moored near an artificial, to getting a bite from the brackish waters in Lake Worth Lagoon, to bass fishing along the shore of a freshwater Chain of Lakes. Follow these links for places to visit that makes it easy to cast your rod and reel in your catch!
Florida requires a license to fish, visit Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission for more information.
ERM protects the habitat of over 220 species of resident and migratory birds. Many of these sites ** are part of the
Great Florida Birding and Wildlife Trail that stretches 2,000 miles from Key West to Gulf Islands National Seashore.
