Florida Audubon's Ahhochee Hill Sanctuary is 270 acres of protected wildlife habitat surrounded by other publicly protected land. The property was left to Florida Audubon Society by Lisa von Borowsky, one of Hernando Audubon's first board members and a longtime supporter of Florida Audubon.
Recently a Longleaf Pine Habitat Restoration project began on 140 acres through a USDA grant. Hardwoods have been thinned to allow for natural reseeding of the pines from the existing pine forest. The photo immediately above at left shows a partial view of the restored pine forest. The photo was provided by Christie Anderberg.
The property is open to chapter or group visits, and volunteers are critical to maintaining it for the wildlife.
Hernando Audubon has office space on site, has assisted with this annual work day for many years and supported the Sanctuary with funds for special projects.
