Canaveral National Seashore
Canaveral National Seashore contains 57,000 acres of some of Florida’s most treasured landscapes. It offers refuge to 14 threatened and endangered species, including three species of sea turtles that nest each summer. Also within the seashore there are more than 150 native archaeological sites, none better known and preserved than Turtle Mound. Pioneer Florida is also preserved in the Park with sites like Eldora House and Seminole Rest. The Seashore is yours to enjoy and yours to protect, now and for future generations.
