Welcome to the St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge!
This virtual tour is designed as a self-guiding "ranger's tour" of Lighthouse Road, one of the refuge's most frequently visited attractions. The 6.8 mile virtual tour begins at the refuge's visitor center and concludes at the parking lot at the St. Marks Lighthouse, on the shores of Apalachee Bay. The lighthouse road leads you past alligators, bald eagles, and assortment of wetland birds, beautiful native wildflowers and a wide variety of other wildlife species.
The virtual tour is composed of eight "stops" which offer the opportunity to learn about the refuge's scenic beauty from the comfort of your living room.On the map below, click on the numbered signs to visit each stop; or click here to begin at stop #1.
This virtual drive has highlighted many points along Lighthouse Road over several seasons. The refuge staff invites you to come for a visit in person and to return many times to explore them all. Also, think about visiting one of the other national wildlife refuges around the country or possibly visiting some of the local north Florida parks. Information on these is available at the Refuge visitor center, open seven days a week, except for Federal holidays. Also, call the Refuge at 850-925-6121, if you have additional questions.
"St.Marks National Wildlife Refuge is here to be
enjoyed by you and future generations to come."
