Historical Image Hugh Taylor Birch at Terramar House in Hugh Taylor Birch State Park

Terra Mar is what born naturalist Hugh Taylor Birch named his home that overlooks Fort Lauderdale Beach. Each day, he would sit on the balcony of his master bedroom enjoying the view from his 180-acre coastal land. He lived at his beloved Terra Mar until he was 95 years old. Today, we are given the opportunity to enjoy and nurture what Birch left behind – a precious gift that reflects his passion for nature, wildlife, and the land.

We invite you to learn more about how your support can make a difference in helping to carry on Mr. Birch’s legacy. Terramar Society is a donor-giving program for those individuals who want to take their giving to the next level to help preserve, conserve, enhance, and promote our local state park for current and future generations.
