Gumbo Limbo Nature Center, Inc.

About Us

Founded in 1984, Gumbo Limbo Nature Center is a unique cooperative project of the City of Boca Raton, Greater Boca Raton Beach and Park District, Florida Atlantic University (FAU), and Friends of Gumbo Limbo. Each year, more than 200,000 local and tourist visitors receive valuable environmental education while enjoying respite from the city bustle.

As a beacon for environmental education, research and conservation, Gumbo Limbo’s 20 acres of protected barrier island not only provides refuge to many varieties of plants and animals ~ some rare or endangered ~ but represents a commitment to protect our natural resources by our members, volunteers, and the organizations that comprise the Center.

You can join us in our Mission to support coastal and marine education, conservation, and research endeavors of the Gumbo Limbo Nature Center be becoming a member of Friends of Gumbo Limbo.
