Green Cay Wetlands (3/29/2018)

A quick afternoon stroll at this gorgeous location. The Green Cay Wetlands are a nature preserve located in Boynton Beach, Florida. It is also a water reclamation facility, and naturally filters millions of gallons of water each day. It includes 1.5 miles of elevated boardwalk that traverses various habitats, including cabbage palm hammock, cypress swamp, wetland hammock, and tropical hardwood hammock. Short video at the end.
