Holt Pond Nature Preserve – Tucked away on a dirt road in Naples is Holt Pond Nature Preserve, “a magical place to explore . . .” The bog pond, Muddy River, beaver dams, a quaking bog, cattails, pitcher plants, a heron rookery and more await in this 500-acre preserve. A canoe is available for public use; bring your own paddles and PFD. Boardwalks make wet areas accessible. Trails are well-marked. Guided walks are offered throughout the year by Lakes Environmental Association or enjoy this place by yourself for quiet reflection.
