Beautiful preserve with wonderful trails. Don't fool with the gators! Just keep your eyes up and enjoy the scenery. Keep your camera handy too. Beautiful birds, turtles, butterflies and dragon flies and yes... gators.

The preserve was very lovely- peaceful and well-cared for. The best part when we visited on June 24 was the archaeological dig in the area of the Native American shell ring. Volunteers were there to answer questions. It was such a treat to see this...More
