Some 136,000 longleaf pines were planted at the 16,683-acre St. Sebastian River State Buffer Preserve for this multi-year project. The project will help improve the watershed and provide habitat for 23 distinct and rare natural plant communities, i.e. water sundew, butterfly orchid, celestial lily; 28 protected animal species, i.e. Florida manatee, red cockaded woodpecker; and 26 protected plant species. The project will also enhance areas used for low impact recreation such as hiking, camping, and swimming.
