The Bank helps to provide habitat for several listed animal species such as the Red Cockaded Woodpecker, Sandhill Crane and gopher tortoise. Field trip participants will be able to see 4 hydrological improvements ( 2 low water crossings and 2 road removals) as well as an upland pine enhancement project that were required by the Mitigation Bank permit issued by St Johns River Water Management District and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineer.
