Okeeheelee Nature Trails
I told you all about the great birding at Okeeheelee, like seeing Indigo Buntings transition into breeding plumage, but I would be remiss if I didn't mention the other wildlife. Okeeheelee is also a great place for general nature viewing. One can spy Gopher Tortoises galore or a Box Turtle like the one below.
If reptiles aren't your thing you can also see rabbits, bobcats, and deer in the pine woods. It's especially active after a little shower and things cool down a bit. The flowers around the nature center will also produce some really great butterflies if you're into insects. Next time you're in Palm Beach County give the park a go, you won't be let down.
