Wow! What a wonderful preserve! It has a bit of everything: oak hammock, pine flats, huge lake, swamp, gators, turtles, flowers, birds, fish, & lovely walks through all of these. I highly recommend this spot for a great afternoon!

My husband and I went here for a visit. It was lovely with some beautiful trails. Along the trails you can find beautiful picnic areas. It was gator day when we went. If you have small children this is an awesome day to take them.
