In a continuing effort to improve communication with landowners within the legislative boundaries of Big Cypress National Preserve, National Park Service staff will hold a meeting at the Preserve Headquarters (located on U.S. 41 four miles east of S.R. 29) on Saturday, February 11th beginning at 1:00 p.m.
There are over 300 privately held parcels within the Preserve. We hope to offer presentations on several topics of interest specifically to those who own property within Big Cypress. A variety of topics related to Preserve management will be covered.
If you have any questions related to this announcement please contact Christine Clark at (239) 695-1153.

Do not feed wildlife within the preserve. A "fed bear is a dead bear." This bear was fed and eventually became a threat to visitor safety. Nuisance wildlife is sometimes removed, but typically does not survive.
