Manager's Message

Dylan Gavagni, Park Manager

The warmer months of spring and summer provide amazing scenery, from the thousand shades of brown across the pine flatwoods to the fields of yellow and white across the wet prairies. Come see that there is a reprieve from the heat on our trails when you take time to sit on one of the new park benches on the trail. Sit under the shade of the dancing pine trees and witness all the life of spring, from the brand-new whitetail fawns or the sandhill crane chicks walking close to mom. You will not be disappointed.

Keep cool while riding a bike along park drive, where you will see turkey, roseate spoonbills and a family favorite - brand-new calves in the cattle pastures.

Multiple user groups are bound to find a place here, on the trail, along the river, or just on a bench. Be amazed by the beauty and serenity of well-managed conservation land.

Trails are designated to avoid sensitive ecosystems and protect from the spread of exotic plants. Please stay on marked trails for the long-term protection of this unique place and for the safety of all visitors.

Plan ahead, pack appropriately, and most definitely enjoy your visit!
