This action adds thousands of additional recreation acres in western Palm Beach County, where residents and visitors can enjoy the outdoors.
     “This Board remains committed to protecting public access of taxpayer-owned District resources,” said SFWMD Governing Board Chairman Dan O’Keefe. “This is a win-win. The A-1 FEB has been providing tremendous benefits to the Everglades ecosystem and now the public will be able to enjoy all the area has to offer with hiking, biking, hunting, wildlife viewing and other activities.”
