Enchanted Forest Field Trip (Titusville)

January 8 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

Join Matt Heyden and Lora Losi for a bird walk Saturday, January 8, 2022 at the Enchanted Forest.

** You must signup on Meetup to attend this event to ensure we do not exceed our participation limit **

A “Flagship” sanctuary, the Enchanted Forest Sanctuary is the first property that was purchased by the Brevard County EEL Program. This 470-acre forest is part of a sanctuary network that the EEL Program is working to establish in the county.

Located in the southern limits of the City of Titusville, the Enchanted Forest Sanctuary preserves diversity of natural habitats. Several miles of hiking trails allow visitors to enjoy the natural beauty of the region. Wildlife observation, nature photography, and hiking are popular recreational activities. A wonderful wealth of plant life also abounds as both temperate (northern) and subtropical (southern) species grow in the Sanctuary together. The Management & Education Center interprets the Sanctuary’s unique natural features for visitors of all ages and abilities.

There are five basic habitat types found at the Enchanted Forest Sanctuary: Oak scrub, mesic and hydric hammock, wet prairie, and pine flatwood. Wildlife species found here include the Eastern indigo snake, Florida scrub lizard, gopher tortoise, white-tailed deer, and bobcat.

This site has 100 species reported in eBird overall.

We will meet at 9:00 am at the parking lot at 444 Columbia Blvd, Titusville.

Recommend you wear comfortable closed-toe shoes, long pants, long sleeve shirt, and a hat and bring water and bug spray.
