Harns Marsh is located in the eastern portion of Lee County located off of Sunshine Blvd in Lehigh Acres. In the late 1980’s, East County Water Control District transformed the 578-acre farmland into an active stormwater facility helping to filter water and reduce flooding to the Orange River. The water control structures have helped create a lush habitat for snail kites, limpkin and more than 160 species of animals.
Getting there: From Lee Blvd, head north on Sunshine Blvd, turn left on Olive, and then turn left on 38th. Continue to the Marsh.
