Description

This 116-acre Preserve is adjacent to Eagle Point Park. A grant from the Florida Communities Trust was awarded for the acquisition of this property for 50% of the acquisition cost. This site is located within one of the Coastal Ecological Planning Units identified in the Assessment of Measures to Protect Wildlife Habitat in Pasco County. The Preserve currently has several geocaches.

Preserve Information

This coastal property serves as a nesting habitat for migratory birds and listed species including the white ibis and snowy egret, while ensuring protection of natural and rapidly disappearing water frontage on the Gulf of Mexico. A short nature trail (0.18 miles) extends from the parking lot to a pavilion and observation deck nestled in mangroves. Pasco Palms protects native forested wetlands, salt marshes, mixed hardwood pine forests, mangrove swamps, and tidal flats.
