Helpful Information

There is something to see year-round at Fort White WEA. Fall and spring are good times to check the floodplain forest for neotropical migrants. Seasonal ponds attract wood ducks in the winter; summer specialties include Mississippi and swallow-tailed kites. Hiking is most pleasant in the cooler months. Blazing star, goldenrod, milkweed, aster and other fall wildflowers attract a variety of butterflies.

Archery and small game seasons occur in the fall and turkey hunting takes place in the spring. Note that during archery and spring turkey seasons, only persons participating in the hunt are allowed access. Hikers and paddlers should wear brightly colored clothing during seasonal hunts, and avoid the first hour or so of daylight to minimize disturbance to hunters.
