PALM-BAY-580Turkey Creek Sanctuary is a little bit of heaven on earth.

It’s hard to believe its nestled in the heart of one of Central Florida’s largest cities, Palm Bay.

As part of the Brevard County Environmentally Endangered Lands (EEL) program and the East Florida section of the Great Florida Birding Trail, Turkey Creek Sanctuary is 130 acres of wonder, biodiversity and natural resources.

Established in 1981, the Sanctuary offers a 1.85 mile boardwalk passing through hydric (wet) hammock, mesic (moist) hammock, and sand pine scrub communities, and 1.5 miles of jogging trails through native forest, both excellent for viewing a multitude of wild life.
