The St. Sebastian River Preserve State Park preserves the open grassy forest of longleaf pine once common in Florida. The preserve is part of The Great Florida Birding Trail and is a top birding site. Look for the rare Florida scrub jay and red-cockaded woodpeckers, Bachmann’s sparrows, sandhill crane and more. Wildlife abounds with river otters, alligators, wild turkey, gopher tortoises and more. Motorized vehicles are not permitted to travel through the preserve, so be prepared to explore miles of trails by hiking, biking or horseback riding. As with all outdoor recreation in this region, sunscreen, sun hats, insect repellant and an ample water supply are a necessity. More trail information is available at the Visitor Center, where you can also examine a skull collection and sign up for one of the many environmental programs. Fishing and primitive camping is available. There is no entrance fee.
