Managed Areas Banner
In and around Nassau and Duval Counties, managed areas provide recreational opportunities for both residents and visitors to the area. Boaters can visit several barrier islands and spend the day basking on the beach. Anglers can wet a line in the hopes of catching a trophy trout or red drum.

These managed areas also provide a refuge for many plants and animals that call this area home. Many of the barrier islands serve as nesting and resting areas for birds. Aquatic grass beds, saltmarsh and oyster bars provide areas for many bird species to feed.

This section of the Web site highlights managed areas that provide boating and fishing opportunities to residents and visitors alike or protect habitat for the area's plants and animals.
