Mission Statement

To increase public awareness of coastal and marine ecosystems through research, education, preservation, and conservation.

Description

This 20-acre coastal preserve is a destination you don’t want to miss! Gumbo Limbo Nature Center is surrounded by a rare remnant of tropical hardwood hammock, located on a barrier island. Enjoy a walk on our newly reconstructed boardwalk which travels 1/3 mile through the coastal forest and connects to Red Reef Park West. Take a stroll through the butterfly garden, where many species of wild butterflies can be seen year-round. Walk the Ashley Trail and relax in the authentic Chiki overlooking the Intracoastal Waterway. A variety of native fish and other marine animals reside in large outdoor marine aquariums. Visit the Sea Turtle Rehabilitation Facility to learn about our sea turtle patients. Florida Atlantic University has an onsite marine biology laboratory with a gallery for viewing research projects conducted by professors and students. Purchase imaginative and environmentally friendly gifts from the nature-themed gift shop. Admission is a suggested donation of $5 per person.
