Meet Danny Rohan at the trailhead and parking area located near 10777 Holden Park Road in Hawthorne (2.6 miles down Holden Park Road off Highway 301). Managed by Alachua Conservation Trust (ACT), this 578-acre preserve contains a diverse mix of longleaf sandhill habitat, flatwoods, wetlands, mesic hammock, and shoreline of Moss Lee Lake. We will visit the North Florida Sandhills Grassland Bird Habitat Restoration site, a multi-year restoration project with AAS, ACT, UF GREBE, and the US Fish and Wildlife Service to learn about the ongoing work to expand grassland bird habitat in the region.
