Amberjack Environmental Park
Amberjack is a 225 acre park made up of unique scrub, pine flatwoods, marshes and other beautiful areas. Amberjack is traversed by two significant wetlands. They are havens for several species of wading birds, including glossy ibis, roseate spoonbills and snowy egrets. Two boardwalks lead to observational platforms on Lemon Lake, where people can enjoy the amazing variety of birds who inhabit the lake and the surrounding areas.
