Disney Wilderness Preserve

disney-wilderness-preserve[1]

Located south of Orlando, the 12,000-acre preserve straddles the headwaters of the Everglades ecosystem. Bordered by cypress-ringed Lake Russell, with one of the area’s last undeveloped lakefronts, the preserve is home to more than 1,000 species of plants and animals. It anchors a mosaic of protected Central Florida lands where visitors can step back into time.

Good educational facility with 7 miles of trails.  Watch for turkeys and sandhill cranes on the drive in.  On the trail, expect raptors, bobwhites, wrens, warblers, blue birds, and sparows.  Scan lake for woodcocks, waders, snipe, king rails, and ducks.
