Castellow Hammock Preserve and Nature Center

This 112-acre park has a bird and butterfly garden that sports multicolored Painted Buntings in winter and migrants such as Worm-eating Warblers and American Redstarts in spring and fall. Its hardwood hammock is a remnant of a once more widespread South Florida habitat and includes an invitingly shady trail great for songbirds and butterflies. Approach the nature center slowly from the parking lot to avoid flushing birds in the garden; nature trail departs from the back side of the nature center. The flowers around the nature center attract lots of butterflies including Ruddy Daggerwings. Nighttime owl prowls are scheduled in advance; call for more information.
