Little Orange Creek Preserve

Replanting Our Nation’s Forests

Forest Overview

Little Orange Creek Preserve
Little Orange Creek Preserve covers nearly 2,900 acres of the upper Little Orange Creek watershed. This diverse patchwork of wetlands features a series of public trails for hiking, biking and horseback riding. It also provides habitat for a wide variety of plants and animals including bears, deer, coyotes, bobcats, otters, and many wading birds.

Little Orange Creek Preserve Needs Our Help

Little Orange Creek is one of many impaired waterways in the Ocklawaha River watershed. The cause is nutrient pollution, which leads to water-quality issues such as oxygen depletion and aquatic habitat smothering. Longleaf pine replanting in the preserve will help mitigate this problem by providing excellent recharge, water filtration, and important wildlife habitat.
