Grassy Waters Preserve offers unique guided environmental learning opportunities on the edge of a 23-square-mile wetlands resource. This vast watershed was historically the headwaters of the Loxahatchee River system and the gateway to the Northern Everglades. The Preserve includes a nature center, an accessible boardwalk trail, hiking, biking, guided canoe and kayak programs, school programs and more!
The West Palm Beach Public Utilities Department manages, protects, and enhances this remnant Everglades ecosystem that supplies the fresh drinking water to more than 130,000 people in West Palm Beach, the Town of Palm Beach, and the Town of South Palm Beach.
Grassy Waters Preserve
The Surfrider Foundation is dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of the world’s ocean, waves and beaches, for all people, through a powerful activist network. In addition to our work with ensuring clean water for all, encouraging sustainable gardens using ocean friendly practices, and protecting public beach access, we are focused on ending the production of single-use plastics. Researchers estimate there are now over 5.25 trillion pieces of plastic in the ocean with 8.75 million metric tons being added every year. So what’s the best way to combat this global epidemic facing our ocean? It’s simple: we need to stop the problem at the source! The Surfrider Foundation’s Ocean Friendly Restaurants program does just that. One restaurant, one customer at a time, it increases awareness, drives behavioral change, and ultimately creates scalable impact to reduce our plastic footprint. palmbeachcounty.surfrider.org
