Restoring & Protecting the Biodiversity of the Outstanding Natural Area

by Peter DeWitt, BLM Program Manager 

The Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse Outstanding Natural Area is 120-acres of legislatively protected public lands in northern Palm Beach County, Florida. The site is recognized and protected, in part, due to its native habitats and extensive biodiversity over which the Bureau of Land Management is responsible for management. Join the Bureau’s on-site program manager, Peter De Witt, for a brief journey through the site's restoration efforts, on-going management strategies, and future projects to protect its unique and significant biological resources.
