Gumbo Limbo Nature Center is a unique facility run by the cooperative efforts of the City of Boca Raton, Greater Boca Raton Beach and Park District, Florida Atlantic University (FAU), and Gumbo Limbo Coastal Stewards. Each year, thousands of visitors learn about Florida’s fragile marine ecosystems and endangered sea turtles, and ways to protect and conserve them. School field trips, summer camps, tours and public programs are just some of the ways our educators share our mission and our message; canoeing, kayaking, and citizen science programs give native Floridians as well as visitors from all over the globe opportunities to interact with the many natural wonders found in South Florida. Gumbo Limbo’s 20 acres of protected barrier island not only provide refuge to many varieties of plants and animals – some rare or endangered – but also allow humans to experience the benefits of being outdoors in nature.
