A little History:

The original wetlands were drained at the beginning of the last century for sugar cane farming and cattle grazing.  This was accomplished through a system of levees, canals and a pumoing station.  On the trail toward the beach, you will see the remains of this system.  Heavy rains from Hurricane David in 1979 flooded the area and breached the levees.  Water filled the former basin forming the actual lagoons, and many groups came together to have it in remain in its natural original state.  You will also find onld pill box bunkers from WWII, along with great fishing and activities there.  Here is a basic map of the Reserve:
