Fox Pen Preserve

Beginner birding enthusiasts, join Alachua Audubon and ACT at the Fox Pen Preserve for a guided bird walk and eBird tutorial.

This walk will take visitors through a longleaf restoration area and to the edge of Moss Lee Lake, south of Hawthorne, FL.

Masks will be required to be worn at all times during this event.

Be sure to wear closed-toe shoes and long pants. Bring water, snacks, bug spray, sunscreen, and a hat. If you have them, please feel free to bring your own binoculars and/or spotting scopes. Face masks are required.

In partnership with Alachua County, ACT purchased Fox Pen in early 2019. The preserve includes 578 acres of land in eastern Alachua County that are part of a key tract in the Lockloosa Forest project area. The preserve is also located within the Orange Creek Basin, which includes several outstanding Florida waterways.

The preserve includes a diverse mix of longleaf sandhill habitat, flatwoods, wetlands, mesic hammock, and shoreline of Moss Lee Lake. It also provides habitat for a diversity of wildlife, including gopher tortoise, Northern bobwhite quail, multiple species of reptiles and amphibians, and Florida black bear. Learn more here.
