Lake Lizzie Conservation Area
Lake Lizzie Conservation Area consists of several parcels purchased with funds from both the state Conservation and Recreational Lands (CARL) program and the Environmental Lands Conservation Program, formerly known as SAVE Osceola. The 1,076 acre preserve is located on Lake Lizzie, Bay Lake and Trout Lake in the Upper Kissimmee Chain of Lakes. This beautiful mosaic landscape is located off east US192 in St. Cloud.
The property protects important ecological communities such as lakes, wet prairies, freshwater marsh, wetland hardwood swamp/bay swamp, scrubby pine flatwoods and the imperiled sand pine scrub and xeric oak scrub. The diversity of communities represented within the preserve increase the potential for utilization by many protected species indigenous to the region. Several unique and important species, such as gopher tortoises, sandhill cranes, osprey, limpkins and wood storks have all been observed at the property. Several listed plant species, such as slender club moss, hooded pitcher plant, sand holly, cinnamon fern and the big yellow milkwort are also found on the property.
Lake Lizzie is open to the public for passive recreational use and serves as a conservation area for native wildlife and vegetation habitat.
