Holey Land Wildlife Management Area, bordered by Rotenberger and
Everglades Wildlife Management Areas, is part of the most northern
extent of remaining Everglades sawgrass marsh. The marsh and
tree island communities scattered throughout the area, along with a
red maple forest on the western edge, provide essential habitat for
many plant and wildlife species. Here you can also hunt
white-tailed deer, common snipe, and marsh rabbit. Blue-winged
teal, mottled ducks, and other waterfowl are found in the sloughs
in the northeastern portion of the area.
Although the marsh is most easily traversed by airboats and
tracked vehicles, the extensive network of levees and canals
constructed for flood control and water supply afford ample
opportunities for bird watching, fishing, hiking, and biking.
