Clark Bay Conservation Area
In Volusia County, north of U.S. 92 and east of SR 11.
The uplands of the conservation area are comprised mainly of wet and mesic flatwoods. These communities have been altered extensively by past silvicultural (tree farming) activities. They were affected by the 1998 wildfires and are in various stages of restoration. The uplands drain into several large basin swamps that form two streams, Deep Creek and Little Haw Creek. The creeks are main tributaries for Lake Woodruff Basin and Crescent Lake Basin, respectively. The wetlands within the conservation area are largely intact.
Please respect Florida’s wildlife and use caution while visiting district lands. These are wild animals. For your safety, do not approach or feed any wild animal. Species here include Florida black bear, bald eagle, sandhill crane, gopher tortoise and wood stork. Deer, turkey, migratory songbirds, swallow-tailed kite, heron, wood ducks and a variety of snakes and lizards have also been observed.
