Description

Off Fleischmann Blvd. and Highway 41 look for the signs indicating The Naples Preserve. There is parking on the north end of the preserve. The visitor/education center is right to the side of the parking, you can't miss it. Look for the big signs and the steps to get on the boardwalk. From there follow the trail around the loop and keep an eye out for gopher tortoises and their burrows. There are information pamphlets at the start. When you come back, write down what you saw on the whiteboard!

This is a unique boardwalk loop through 9 and a half acres of preserved Naples land. There is also a visitor center to learn more about the preserve and what naples was like before it was a town. The park is nonprofit and is maintained by volunteers.

Flora & Fauna

Gopher Tortoises, Turtles, birds, Scrub Community, Pine Flatwoods Community, epiphytes, much more (read the sign by the start!)
