This water catchment area for West Palm Beach covers 20 square miles of glades-like wetlands. Snail Kites are common here, as are Glossy and White Ibises, Limpkins and more. Bald Eagles nest here as well. Several options for exploring the area include: From the parking area, walk the ADA boardwalk through a cypress swamp to the water, watching for songbirds like Blackburnian and Yellow-rumped Warblers on migration; Call ahead to join a scheduled, guided “swamp tromp” or canoe/kayak trip of the area; Hike or bike the 17 mile Owahee Trail, and/or hike the Apoxee and Eagle Trails.
