CONSERVATION AT HALPATIOKEE
Martin County’s Ecosystem Restoration and Management Division manages the conservation lands within Halpatiokee Regional Park.
Halpatiokee Regional Park conserves over 500 acres of natural lands, approximately four miles of frontage on the South Fork of the St. Lucie River, and provides easily-accessible recreational opportunities for residents and visitors to Martin County.
The landscape varies from mesic hammock, scrubby flatwoods, scrub, and river land. These lands provide habitat for sustainable populations of hundreds of species of native flora and fauna, including at least 13 species that are designated by the State of Florida as endangered or threatened.
The park’s miles of hiking trails, off-road non-motorized biking trails, canoe and kayak paddling trails and riverside campsite provide high-quality nature-based recreational opportunities for outdoor enthusiasts.
