about the preserve

Naples Botanical Garden is home to a unique 90-acre nature sanctuary with habitats ranging from flooded brackish marsh to dry upland scrub. Less than three miles from Old Naples, the Preserve’s giant pines and gnarles scrub oaks, unspoiled marshes, and twisted mangroves, provide vital habitat for hundreds of species of animals from eagles to otters and bobcats to gopher tortoises.

To date we have catalogued almost 300 species of native plants occuring naturally on our site.
