Salt Lake Wildlife Management Area Trailer Tour
February 3, 2022 @ 6:45 am - 11:30 am$25.00
Meet at Salt Lake WMA, 1590 Arch Rd., Mims. There is a porta pottie located at the Salt Lake WMA main entrance. No restroom facilities are available during the trip.
Salt Lake WMA’s 8,000 acres border three large lakes and the St. Johns River in northern Brevard County. Don’t miss this chance to explore it in a bench seat trailer. Home to a spectacular range of natural communities, this beautiful property includes pine flatwoods, hardwood hammocks and oak scrub on higher ground. Oak and cabbage palm hammocks, swamps, freshwater marshes, wet prairies, and salt flats occupy the wetter locales. Numerous wading birds, shorebirds, waterfowl, and raptors can be found on the lakes and marshes and the river. Bald Eagles and Wild Turkeys are commonly seen. The flatwoods provide good habitat for woodpeckers and songbirds, such as the Eastern Bluebird and Bachman’s Sparrow. Gopher tortoises, deer, feral hogs, river otters, alligators and turtles may also be seen. This extraordinary opportunity to be able to ride through the management area rather than walk it, as well as the reasonable cost, is a benefit of the Watchable Wildlife Public Access Program of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.
