San Felasco is considered one of the finest woodlands in north
Florida and includes limestone outcrops, sinkholes, hardwood
hammocks, longleaf pine forests, and Sanchez PrairieÂ¾a large basin
forested with planar and pop ash trees. There are many champion
trees and rare plants.
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.
