Find nature in the center of town

Scrub, scrubby flatwoods, mesic flatwoods, wet flatwoods, dome swamp, mangrove swamp, and salt marsh are found in this compact 16-acre site in the heart of the Town of Jupiter.  As you walk the trails look for wild pine epiphytes (air plants) growing on the tree trunks, or if you are paddling along the black and red mangrove forested shoreline, keep your eyes open for the rare sighting of a manatee.
