Hobe Sound National Wildlife Refuge

This 970-acre refuge is home to the most productive sea turtle nesting area in the region. Pine scrub oak forests lie on 230 acres, while the remainder is covered by mangrove swamps and coastal dunes. The park is also the location of the remaining 10% of Florida's sand pine scrub-oak habitat. Housing at least 30 endangered and threatened species, this park is a wonderful place for the viewing of wildlife. Guests may also walk the diverse trails, participate in some ocean fishing, swim at the sandy beach, and visit the museum. This refuge is a National Natural Landmark, and hosts several special events every year.
