Directly across from the center’s main entrance is a handicap accessible paved path through windswept live oaks. Take a short stroll and discover our boardwalk and observation tower, where you can enjoy outstanding views of the Ponce Inlet Lighthouse, waterways and surrounding wetlands. Move quietly and see who may have taken up residence in the bird house and keep a close eye on the ground for raccoons, tortoises, box turtles, skinks and lizards. Search the skies from the observation tower for bald eagles, osprey, peregrine falcons and various shore bird species including pelicans, terns, cormorants, herons and egrets. The trail can be completed as in as little as five minutes, but the more time you spend quietly observing, the more wildlife you’ll encounter.
