The preserve has been created to showcase the native plants of the Bahamas, but has elegantly used the... More

The info provided for your walk is not accurate (example item 1 is supposed to be XYZ but it turns out to be ABC) and they tell you this up front. So you don't know what plant/tree you are actually looking at. Why not update the info or place more signs telling you what you are looking at.
