Group Description

This group is for photos taken at the Circle B Bar Reserve in Lakeland/Polk County, Florida, USA. This wonderful reserve is teeming with birds and gators in addition to serene natural landscaping.

"Named after a cattle ranch that once existed on this property, Circle B Bar Reserve was jointly acquired by the Polk County Environmental Lands Program and the District to protect the floodplain of the lake and to restore the Banana Creek marsh system. The property is maintained by Polk County. Much of property was converted to pasture, but remnant wetland communities can be found along Banana and Saddle creeks. Largest remnant natural communities are oak hammocks and various forested wetlands, primarily found in northeast corner of property.

Restoration projects are planned for the Banana Creek marsh system, which runs through the center of the property, and for an area of scrub on the southern portion of the site. The marsh system project will restore much of the original hydrologic function of the lands. The scrub restoration will benefit the numerous animals that utilize both wetlands and uplands during various phases of their life cycles."
