Wonderlands of the Lake Worth Lagoon Watershed
Palm Beach County Department of Environmental Resources Management presents an educational photographic nature walk showcasing wonderlands of woods, wetlands and ancient sand dunes located within the Lake Worth Lagoon watershed. The exhibit is showcased at Manatee Lagoon – An FPL Eco-Discovery Center®, located at 6000 N. Flagler Dr., West Palm Beach.
About the Exhibitor:
Palm Beach County’s Department of Environmental Resources Management administers a range of environmental programs designed to protect, preserve and enhance Palm Beach County’s natural resources, both on land and water. Fresh drinking water, unpolluted waterways, a large tree canopy and controlling mosquito populations provide a welcoming outdoor tropical experience to snorkel and dive, visit sandy beaches, fresh or saltwater fish, kayak waterways, hike in the woods all while viewing wildlife in their natural habitat. From Lake Okeechobee to the Atlantic Ocean, the department’s programs cover the county.
About the Exhibit:
This photographic nature walk showcases five natural areas within the Lake Worth Lagoon watershed: Frenchman’s Forest, Winding Waters, Royal Palm Beach Pines, Hypoluxo Scrub and Snook Islands. Each site is different, but they all have one thing in common – rain falling to the ground eventually makes its way to the lagoon. Visitors will learn more about each watershed wonderland and are encouraged to pick up a Palm Beach County Natural Areas guide to explore each site further.
Date: Through summer 2019
Time: During open hours*
*Please note that Manatee Lagoon’s second floor, which includes this exhibit, will be closed during private events.
