Commonly seen wildlife: Alligator, osprey, heron, ibis, egret, spoonbill and sandhill crane. The site is a part of the "Great Florida Birding Trail" providing excellent opportunities for birding.

Historical Interest

The existing 35-acre lake was formerly a mine and is designated a Catch and Release area. Only electric motors are permitted on the lake.

  • Much of the property was a platted subdivision that was never built. The existing grassed roads and ditches will be restored into a natural condition.
