Biologist at wood stork nest
The 566-acre Little Gator Creek Wildlife and
Environmental Area was purchased for the protection and management
of the endangered wood stork. On the area is one of the largest
wood stork nesting sites outside of south Florida. Wood storks have
been nesting intermittently in the area for at least the past 70
years. For the protection of the wood stork and other wading birds,
public access is limited.
"In a part of Florida known mainly for Disney
World and other popular theme parks, central Florida's natural
landscape has much to offer anyone interested in a quieter
interlude." Jeff Ripple, Florida, The Natural Wonders
