Gorgas Science Foundation operates the Sabal Palm Sanctuary, which has over 3 miles of nature trails and is home to the historic Rabb House. Our mission is to raise awareness of the importance of conservation.

All donations help keep the sanctuary open.

This 527-acre preserve is host to a wonderful assortment of birds and other wildlife and is home to one of the last stands of old-growth Sabal Palm jungle in the United States. Green Jays and Chachalacas frequent our feeders, armadillos rummage around our trails, and Great Horned Owl calls often haunt the forest. Take a stroll through the grove, a short walk down to the Rio Grande, or join us for one of our weekly guided birding walks or our history tour which takes you through the 1891 Rabb Plantation Home!
