Event description

Description

In June, 2010, Osceola County purchased the Twin Oaks Conservation Area through the Environmental Lands Conservation Program, formerly known as SAVE Osceola. The 370 acre parcel, located between Kissimmee and St. Cloud, provides protection and enhancement of water resources, flood storage and wildlife habitat along Lake Tohopekaliga (Toho), part of the Kissimmee Chain of Lakes.
Twin Oaks is characterized by improved pastures, live oak hammocks, wet prairies, freshwater marshes, shrub wetlands and remnant cypress. The property has historically served as a cattle ranch and sod production area. As such, the property required restoration efforts to return the landscape to its natural state. The first phase of land restoration required over 45,000 new native plants to be introduced. Come observe this ongoing example of habitat restoration.
