  • Beautiful preserve with miles of walking, biking and canoe trails. Rent a canoe to experience the real Everglades. The canoe trails provide some amazing sights at eye level with gators. Just don't feed or harass the gators and you'll get the same respect from them. If you're not into the whole water thing, there are miles of walking trails to the north or south as well as within the preserve itself. Wildlife is also abundant in these areas. If you're not up for going outside at all, there's a great nature center which provides an abundance of information, There's a recreation of the habitat right inside. There's also a virtual air boat tour that guides you through what you might find outside if you feel brave enough. Overall HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!
  • I had an amazing time at this Wildlife Refuge! I saw many birds , alligators, mammals and insects. It is a must to see for Nature Lovers !! The trails were nice with lots of signs/information. It was great to see all the beautiful vegetation. The entrance fee was very cheap (but only cash) I would definitely go back there some day ;)
  • Beautifully‚Äč taken care of. Staff is friendly and full of information. Indoor activity center is great for all ages. Mile and a half boardwalk is an easy walk and the trees provide great shade. **Might want to bring a bug spray. I had a picnic at the benches- & something got me.
  • Had been over ten years since I'd been here but general layout was the same with many nice upgrades. New boardwalks, tram service, rental booth for canoes/kayaks, very nice fishing dock added next to boat ramps. Only saw two gators the whole time but were there in the heat of day. Lubber crickets have us tons to laugh about because it's obviously breeding season lol tons of birds everywhere as well as Turtles/Tortoises.
  • A great National Wildlife Refuge conveniently located right off of US-441 in Western Boynton Beach. The nature center offers a great amount of information and friendly staff as well as a nice gift shop. There is an easy access boardwalk and a plenitude of non-paved paths to spend several hours and days observing wildlife, such as alligators, turtles, and a variety of birds.
