Harn’s Marsh

Explore the beauty of southwest Florida by visiting the abundance of wildlife at Harns Marsh. It’s located in Lee County off of Sunshine Blvd. in Lehigh Acres. Originally, Harns Marsh was a 578-acre farmland. In the 1980’s, it was transformed to an active stormwater facility to help 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 140 species of animals. Harn’s Marsh is not a park, but a great public exploration destination to hike and observe wildlife.
