Enchanted Forest Sanctuary
A "Flagship" sanctuary, the Enchanted Forest Sanctuary is the first property that was purchased by the Brevard County EEL Program. This 470-acre forest is part of a sanctuary network that the EEL Program is working to establish in the county.
Located in the southern limits of the City of Titusville, the Enchanted Forest Sanctuary preserves a diversity of natural habitats. Several miles of hiking trails allow visitors to enjoy the natural beauty of the region. Wildlife observation, nature photography, and hiking are popular recreational activities. A wonderful wealth of plant life also abounds as both temperate (northern) and subtropical (southern) species grow in the Sanctuary together. The Management & Education Center interprets the Sanctuary's unique natural features for visitors of all ages and abilities.
There are five basic habitat types found at the Enchanted Forest Sanctuary: Oak scrub, mesic and hydric hammock, wet prairie, and pine flatwood. Wildlife species found here include the Eastern indigo snake, Florida scrub lizard, gopher tortoise, white-tailed deer, and bobcat.
