Pine Glades Natural Area

The Pine Glades Natural Area is located just south of the John C. and Mariana Jones Hungryland Wildlife and Environmental Area and is part of the watershed of the Loxahatchee River. It contains five native Florida ecosystems: mesic flatwoods, wet flatwoods, wet prairie, depression marsh, and dome swamp.

The lands that make up the site were acquired in a series of acquisitions during the period 1999-2010. State Florida Forever matching funds for three of the acquisitions were provided by the Florida Communities Trust. Extensive site restoration activities to remove invasive nonnative plant species, restore historic sheet flow of water across the site, and restore the pine flatwoods/wet prairie mosaic community in the agriculturally-altered northeastern portion of the site have been completed. The natural area is part of the Northeast Everglades Natural Area.

Location:  14122 West Indiantown Road, Jupiter, FL (not a mailing address). South side of Indiantown Road (SR 706), east and west of Seminole Pratt Whitney Road (SR 711). For further information on this Natural Area.
