A key component of the Everglades, Rotenberger
Wildlife Management Area in southwestern Palm Beach County creates
the most northwestern extent of the original sawgrass marsh.
Rotenberger is bordered by the Everglades Agricultural Area to the
north, Everglades Wildlife Management Area to the south, and Holey
Land Wildlife Management Area to the east. Throughout the
marsh are landscapes filled with pickerel weed, spider lilies and
muskrat lodges. Here you can view numerous wading birds and hunt
for deer, feral hog, and water fowl.
Although the marsh is most easily traversed by
airboats and tracked vehicles, the extensive network of levees and
canals constructed for flood control and water supply affords ample
opportunities for hiking and biking. There are also hunting
opportunities for deer, feral hog and waterfowl.
