Established as a wintering ground for migratory birds in 1931, St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge is one of the oldest wildlife parks in the country. Encompassing more than 68,000 acres between Jefferson, Taylor and Wakulla Counties, the refuge is home to several coastal habitats, ranging from tidal creeks and saltwater marshes to several Florida river estuaries and islands. The Refuge is also home to an abundance of fauna and flora and features several historic structures such as St. Marks Lighthouse and a large Visitor’s Center.
