Situated on a small protected peninsula that juts into Lemon Bay Aquatic Preserve, this site offers a green haven within the rapidly developing communities around Englewood. A trail system through flatwoods and coastal marsh will lead you past everything from White and Glossy Ibises to Great Horned Owls and down to the bay, where you will find Common Loons, Horned Grebes and Lesser Scaup in winter and a variety of herons (including both species of night heron) and egrets all year long. Nesting Bald Eagles require some trail closures during spring and early summer, but there is still plenty to see.
