Guana Tolomato Matanzas National Estuarine Research Reserve
The former Guana River State Park, this research reserve offers excellent educational opportunities, dune walkovers, hiking, biking, and horseback riding trails. With over 30 foot dune heights, this reserve offers a glimpse of barrier islands before development. The GTMNERR education center is a perfect place to stop for the day and visit. Just across A1A from the education center are beautiful coquina beaches where the occasional Right Whale sighting may take place. These beaches are also a popular spot for some quiet time while beachcombing.
Teeming with life, the Guana Tolomato Matanzas National Estuarine Research Reserve (GTM Research Reserve) is a dynamic, ever changing place with many interconnected habitats from the ocean to the forests. The landscape protects and provides for a great diversity of plants and animals. People have historically changed and preserved this ecosystem. People are an important part of the future of this landscape. This is your reserve! Enjoy, share, and protect it.
