A NOTE FROM THE MANAGER

John Lakich

Special notice: Inlet maintenance dredging is currently under way by the Martin County Coastal Engineering Department. Heavy equipment may be encountered on the easement corridor and southern beach of St. Lucie Inlet Preserve State Park through the end of April.

 

Spring is in the air at St. Lucie Inlet Preserve State Park. The fish are biting and the beaches are beautiful this time of year. Come take a walk on the beach and watch the waves roll ashore or take a leisurely stroll along the boardwalk and enjoy our self-guided plant walk. Simply pick up a plant ID brochure at the Ranger Station kiosk and match the number on the boardwalk railing with the corresponding number in the brochure. Then, return the brochure at the end. Simple and fun.

 

The shorebirds and sea turtles have already begun nesting in the preserve, so please remember that pets are not allowed on the beach.

 

Come visit soon, and enjoy “…the Real Florida.”

 

Note: Tram service to the beach operates every weekend and state holidays 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
