First Hand Glimpse of Wildlife Abound

Wildlife is most active at dawn and dusk but there is plenty to see at all times of the day.  As part of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission’s Great Florida Birding Trail, Boyd Hill is a refuge for even the most seasoned bird watchers. Catch a glimpse of armadillos at Wax Myrtle Pond, alligators on the shores of Lake Maggiore, and gopher tortoises on Pine Flatwoods Trail. If you aren’t interested in exploring on foot, bring your mountain bike and cruise around the trails on wheels.  Bring a snack and enjoy it on one of the outdoor picnic tables.BOYD HILL NATURE PRESERVE ST.
