Pick a partner and take a relaxing canoe cruise along the Grassy Waters Preserve in West Palm Beach. Paddle through the shallow waters of the Everglades and see nature up close. There are lots of birds, turtles, and rabbits on the trail. You may even see an alligator- but don't worry, they won't come close. A tour guide will be leading the pack, pointing out wildlife and talking about the history and ecology of the Grassy Waters and the Everglades.

Be sure to sign up with another person because canoes take two paddlers. Bring closed-toe shoes, some water, and maybe sunscreen and a hat. The cruise will be this Sunday, December 17th from 9:30 a.m.- 11 a.m. The cost is $10 for adults and $5 children. Children must be at least 6 years old and partner with an adult.

The Grassy Waters Preserve is located at 8264 Northlake Boulevard, West Palm Beach, FL 33412.

Grassy Waters Preserve

Grassy Waters Preserve is like the Everglades, but it’s right in West Palm Beach. Grassy Waters is a massive preserve – 20 square miles – that remains untouched because it is now the drinking water supply for the residents of West Palm Beach and several other communities.

Grassy Waters Preserve is home to a variety of native wildlife. Commonly sighted species including the Everglades snail kite, wood stork, white ibis, great blue heron, white-tailed deer, otter, bobcat, and alligator. For the United States, it’s a reservoir like no other. The nature center and boardwalk on the south side of Northlake Road provide the easiest public access to this unique preserve.
