Same Natural Area, New Name In Memory of Kristin Jacobs

Kristin Jacobs, an environmental crusader, passionate leader, former Broward County Commissioner (1998-2014), and member of the Florida House of Representatives (2014-2020), will be forever remembered for putting nature first. Jacobs passed away in April 2020. To honor her legacy, the Broward County Commission has renamed Hillsboro Pineland Natural Area to Kristin Jacobs Natural Area at Hillsboro Pineland, located at 5591 N.W. 74th Place, Coconut Creek. This natural area is rich in both vegetation and wildlife, such as hawks, wood warblers, owls, woodpeckers, and wading birds, as well as butterflies. The natural area is open daily from 8 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.
