This area is also known as the Hungryland Slough Natural Area.  This area was originally slated for one-acre rural residential homes, streets were created, and canals dug.  Due to its location, the developers were never able to work out adequate drainage to actually build on the sites and the lots were purchased by the county of Palm Beach. In 2007, restoration work was completed to return the area to its original wetland state.  

 

Know Before You Go

From I-95, take the Northlake Blvd. exit west until the road terminates at Seminole-Pratt Whitney Rd. Turn right and follow Seminole-Pratt Whitney north as it transitions from pavement to packed sand, until you reach a yellow barrier at the end. Turn right when you see the main entrance to the JW Corbett Wildlife Management Area to your left and park along the canal.
