Felasco Hammock Preserve State Park

Description:
San Felasco is considered one of the finest woodlands in north Florida and includes limestone outcrops, sinkholes, hardwood hammocks, longleaf pine forests, and Sanchez Prairie¾a large basin forested with planar and pop ash trees. There are many champion trees and rare plants.

Watchable wildlife:
The diversity of plant communities provides ample habitat for bobcat, gray fox, white-tailed deer, songbirds, and wild turkey. Summer breeding birds (May through August) include wood thrush, hooded warblers, and prothonotary warblers. Fall and spring migrations bring American redstart, blackpoll warbler, black-throated blue warbler, ovenbird, and yellow-bellied sapsucker. Migratory waterfowl, including teal, wood ducks, and mallards, can be seen on the ponds November through April.
