The preserve had a lot of information on many local plants and also plants that were introduced by other cultures throughout the islands history. Try to go early in the morning, the afternoon heat made a short hike feel longer.

Our whole family really enjoyed exploring the trails and seeing all of the amazing plant and animal life. We also enjoyed learning more information both before and after our hike. Great way to spend a few hours on the island.

Wear hiking shoes if you are taking the trails....have bug spray and water. It is well worth the stop but better in the cooler months.

Lots to see and learn. Our greeter was awesome and full of knowledge. The lookout is a great spot to cool off. The edible plant section is amazing and I would recommend this to anyone close to Governor's Harbour!
