Green Cay Wetlands (and Wakodahatchee Wetlands a few miles away) are both man-made “catch basins” for water that have been treated at water treatment plants in the Cities of Boynton Beach and Delray Beach respectively. These wetlands serve as home for many forms of wildlife and as observation and educational facilities for visitors.
Green Cay Wetlands has a 1.5 boardwalk that is a great observation point for photographers and those who simply enjoy watching the wildlife. The boardwalk is wide enough for strollers and wheel chairs.
Green Cay Nature Center & Wetlands is located at 12800 Hagen Ranch Road, Boynton Beach, Florida. The boardwalk opens daily from 7 AM until sunset.
Here are some of the birds I saw on my first visit to Green Cay:
