Get to Know the Locals

These downloadable sample species lists highlight common plants and animals found on the Southwest Florida Water Management District (District) conservation lands.

The District purchases and manages land in order to protect our area’s water resources. As a result, plants and animals that live on these lands are also protected and the public can enjoy recreational and educational activities in the great outdoors. Each of the areas owned by the District offers something special. Learning as much as possible about what is special before you visit a park/management area allows you to gain an appreciation for what you are likely to experience.
