Prairie Creek Preserve and the surrounding 1,150 acres were purchased by ACT from 2005 to 2009. Over 500 acres were then added to Paynes Prairie Preserve State Park, while another 96 acres were added to Alachua County Forever’s Conservation Lands Program. The remainder comprises Prairie Creek Preserve, a 606-acre nature preserve that includes Prairie Creek Conservation Cemetery, a natural burial ground that also conserves land.

Prairie Creek drains Newnans Lake, one of the largest lakes in north Florida, towards Paynes Prairie Preserve State Park and Orange Lake. The upland areas of the preserve are made up of flatwoods, mesic and hydric hammocks, and wetlands that include cypress swamps, depression marshes, and blackwater streams. To learn more about the preserve here.

This event is free, but supplies and space are limited, please register for the event below.

Contact Alachua Conservation Trust by email at for more information. Due to Covid-19, space is limited to the 25 first people who RSVP.
