A sign at the entrance to the post and cable area includes the following information:

The Rosemary Scrub

Welcome to the rosemary scrub - one of Duval County's natural treasures. In colonial days, this habitat covered all the sandy ridges left behind as the sea level fell thousands of years ago. Since then, humans have developed the uplands and the rosemary scrub has become one of Florida's most endangered habitats.
