Natural Area / Interpretive Trail:
Of our 120 acre site, only 30 acres are under cultivation. The remaining 90 acres feature some of Pinellas County's rarest natural habitat types. Here, we care for scrub and sandhill communities; these ecosystems have nearly disappeared across the state. We are carefully restoring these areas that had degraded over time due to human activities (fire suppression and agriculture).
This land use impacted the natural plant communities and therefore the wildlife associated with it. Using a variety of land management techniques, we are already beginning to see a wonderful diversity of plant and animal life on this once overgrown site.
Our Natural Area and the efforts we have taken to restore these areas, are featured on twenty interpretive panels have been situated along the trail loop subtly so as not to distract from the surroundings.
