The Solid Waste Authority of Palm Beach County strives to set an example in the way we balance industry and nature. You are standing in a massive industrial complex next to thousands of acres of natural areas, including Grassy Waters Preserve. The SWA Greenway Trail system is a 300 acre natural area with almost 5 miles of trails. In 1985, this area was permanently designated as a conservation area as it is a vital habitat for the endangered snail kite. In this conservation area, you can bike or walk through diverse upland and wetland habitats, pine Flatwoods, cabbage palm hammocks, marshes, wet prairies, and lakes. By protecting this important habitat, we are improving the quality of life for both the public and the wildlife that use it. You can learn more about our trails at SWA.org/trails.
