Seventy years ago, herons, egrets, and pelicans nesting on several small islands in Lake Worth Lagoon led the Audubon Society to designate the islands as bird sanctuaries. The Bingham, Bolton, and Blossom families leased the islands to Audubon. These unique lagoon islands offer:
- meditative respite for connecting with nature
- subtropical hardwood hammocks and mangrove forests
- nesting and roosting areas for the birds of Lake Worth Lagoon
Audubon protects these islands by removing invasive species and maintaining a thriving native plant community. Click here to help Audubon manage this important refuge!
