    Ecological & Historic Preserve Florida

Visiting the Theodore Roosevelt Area

Visitors can experience miles of thickly wooded peaceful nature trails, vast grassland that supports both water and land animals, ancient piles of discarded oyster shells which yield clues about an extinct culture, and the legacy of preservation bequeathed to all by this property's last private owner, Willie Browne. The Theodore Roosevelt Area is open 9:00 to 4:45 daily.
