Ecological Preserves

These larger parks allow individuals to experience isolation in a natural landscape. Ecological preserves are part of a system of wilderness corridors and provide are key to ecosystem function.  They are protected from significant human development and create natural boundaries for the region.  They should be a minimum of 500 acres. 

Examples: Wekiva River Buffer Conservation Area (Seminole County) Little Econ State Forest (Seminole County).
