Ethics for Birdwatching
Please do not disturb nesting birds, as this
may expose eggs and young to extreme
temperature and predation.
Wintering wildlife need all of their energy
reserves to withstand the stresses of harsh
weather and migration, particularly during
feeding and resting periods, therefore they
should be disturbed as little as possible.
DO NOT LITTER! Many birds die when they
become entangled in fishing lines, 6-pack
rings and other trash.

Injured and Orphaned Wildlife
Nestlings (featherless birds) can be safely
placed back into their nest. Fledglings
(feathered baby birds) often leave the nest
before they are able to fly. Parent birds will
continue to care for these babies. If you find
a baby bird that is truly orphaned or an
injured bird, DO NOT give it food or water.
Place the bird in a ventilated box and call a
wildlife rehabilitator immediately.
Location
The nature center is located one mile into
Okeeheelee Park on the north side of Forest Hill
Blvd. between Jog Rd. and the FL Turnpike.
Programs are offered throughout the year for all
ages as well as school field trips and programs
for groups, scouts or clubs.
Call to schedule your next group visit.
Palm Beach County
Board of County Commissioners
Come explore 90 acres of pine flatwoods
along more than 2 miles of trails as you
search for some of the 113 species of birds
that live here. Small ponds and a marsh
encourage wading birds and waterfowl to rest
and feed. Two blinds by the East Marsh allow
for a closer look at these water birds.
Bird feeders in front and behind the nature
center building bring buntings, warblers and
other small birds. Be sure to look for migrating
hummingbirds in our butterfly garden and
migrating warblers in fruiting and flowering
trees. Enjoy your visit!
Please notify staff of any unusual sightings.
Thanks!
