Habitat Management

Location Map of Open Space Properties receiving habitat management - Jones Creek Hammock, Jones CreeDuring the months of August and September 2019, the Town of Jupiter will be conducting prescribed habitat management in the following open space properties:  

  • Jones Creek Headwaters, 
  • Jones Creek Hammock, and 
  • Georgian Park Preserve (see map).  

During this time, residents will notice strategic mechanical clearing intended to mimic the effects of a natural wildfire, which reduces the risk of accidental wildfire and increases the quality of the habitat for native plants and wildlife.  

Those nearby the properties may see and hear the heavy mechanical equipment that is used to perform the maintenance.  Please do not be alarmed by the activity.  

The Town appreciates your patience as it works to properly care for and maintain its open space properties.  Should you have any questions, please call the Town’s Natural Resources Division at (561) 741-2523 or (561) 741-2565.
