Four Creeks State Forest
Replanting Our Nation’s Forests
Forest OverviewNot far from Jacksonville, the forest is named for the four waterways that form the headwaters of the Nassau River. In all, there are more than 50 miles of river and about 10 square miles of estuary in this watershed which are home to deer, turkey, wild hog, gopher tortoise, wading birds and numerous species of resident and migratory songbirds.
Four Creeks State Forest Needs Our HelpThis forest serves an important role in the watershed management of northern Florida and the need to replant areas on the forest lost to wildfire are great. The goal, with help from our members and donors, is to help replant 131 acres of damaged areas that are critical to the area watershed and to the animals that dwell in the forest.
