"The cleanest and purest of any river . . .
almost as transparent as the air we breathe."
-Naturalist William Bartram, 1774
Andrews Wildlife Management Area is an oasis in the
rapidly developing Lower Suwannee River region. Of the estimated
20,000 to 25,000 acres of upland hardwood forest that once existed
along the lower Suwannee, the last large tract is located within
the 3,582-acre Andrews WMA.
Andrews's old-growth upland hardwood forest shows
little evidence of human disturbance. Its well-developed canopy
with trees in various stages of growth and decay provides food,
cover, and nesting and denning sites for many wildlife species.
Here you can enjoy small, high-quality hunts and excellent fishing
along the banks of the Suwannee. Hike, jog, or bike along pleasant
