Over 1800 acres of the Little Everglades Ranch is in conservation with the Southwest Water Management District. This conservation easement means that the ranch will never be developed for housing or business centers, but will remain as it is today for generations to come.
Over the past 10 years, hundreds of acres of peat have been mined on the property leaving vast lakes which serve as retention areas for water to recharge the Florida aquifer. This effort to perfect the environment and the health of the aquifer, also supplies a habitat for the aquatic plants and wildlife.
Five hundred plus native Live Oaks and Magnolia Trees have been planted on the ranch for the aesthetic value and also to supply additional food sources for the native animals that live on the property and travel through the wildlife corridor we have created.
Little Everglades Ranch is proud of their efforts to make this property an environmental legacy to be enjoyed by future generations.
