Year Planted: 2001

Trees Planted: 160,000

The 16,683 acre-St. Sebastian River State Buffer Preserve is managed by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection for conservation and preservation of native ecosystems. The preserve encourages low-impact outdoor recreation such as hiking, camping, and swimming. The area is home to 23 distinct and rare natural plant communities, 28 protected animal species, and 26 protected plant species. Some endangered species that occur on the St. Sebastian River State Buffer Preserve are Curtiss milkweed, Large-flowered rosemary, Celestial lily, West Indian manatee, Peregrine falcon, and wood stork. The preserve also safeguards one-third of the St. Sebastian River watershed. This is the second year of the project, in which an additional 160,000 longleaf pine seedlings were planted.
