We headed over to Gumbo Limbo a few weeks ago, and yes I only just got the photo’s edited!
If you have not been in awhile, you really should go! They have done an immense amount of work to update and build new tanks.
Gumbo Limbo is a Nature Center in Boca Raton, and it is both a city park and a part of the FAU Research Programs. Sea turtles are studied, rehabbed and released through this facility. Gumbo Limbo was created in 1984 and focuses on environmental education.
The nature center is a preserve for all kinds of native wildlife and includes trails and boardwalks, tanks of native fish, butterfly gardens and a fire tower that is 40 feet high overlooking the mangroves, Lake Wyman, and even the Atlantic Ocean.
Gumbo Limbo offers educational programs, fish feedings, and school programs all year long. The facility is free to enter however there is a suggested donation of $5 per person. This is a great place to spend a few hours with the family, get in touch with nature and learn about the amazing environment we are so lucky to have in our back yard!
I hope everyone is having a great week. I know many of you are on Spring Break and I suggest you head over to Gumbo Limbo! I will be putting a full review up later this week, but this is a great place! You can climb up a 40 foot fire watch tower and look over Lake Wyman to the West and and the Ocean to he East, learn about sea turtles and what is being done to protect them, and walk through a butterfly garden to a chickeehut on Lake Wyman.
This place is loads of fun and they have really been working to build it up.
