Description

The Loxahatchee River and Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse makes the history of Northern Palm Beach County unique in all of Florida. From Native American habitation to modern military occupation, the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse Reservation site at the confluence of the Loxahatchee River, Indian River and Jupiter Inlet has held a natural attraction for thousands of years.

The Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse is a national treasure! The Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse Oustanding Natural Area (JILONA) Act 2007, designates the lighthouse and its surrounding 126 acres of sensitive habitat as an Outstanding Natural Area(ONA) in the Department of Interior, Bureau of Land Management's National Landscape Conservation System. JILONA is the first Outstanding Natural Area in the nation on the East Coast. Only two others exist: Yaquina Head in oregon and Piedras Blancas Lighthouse in California.

The Congressional Bill signed on May 8, 2008 safeguards this treasured site for all Americans in perpetuity. In addition to significant archaeological and historical resources on the property, 18 threatened and endangered species will be protected.
