About

The Blackwater Creek Nature Preserve was acquired from 1997 through 2003 by Hillsborough County through the Jan K. Platt Environmental Lands Acquisition and Protection Program (ELAPP) and Florida Communities Trust (FCT). This 2,200 acre preserve includes some of the finest remaining examples of long leaf pine dominated mesic pine flatwoods and blackwater streams, interspersed with hardwood hammocks, cypress domes, freshwater marshes, and wet prairies.
