Crescent Lake Conservation Area


3,528 acres.


Northeast of Seville and southwest of Bunnell, at the south end of Crescent Lake in Flagler and Volusia counties.


Crescent Lake Conservation Area serves as a buffer for Crescent Lake. Seventy-five percent of this area is within the lake’s floodplain and provides water storage and protection. The conservation area is adjacent to Haw Creek Preserve and Haw Creek Preserve State Park, which protect wetlands and water quality for approximately two miles along Haw Creek. Haw Creek Preserve, a Flagler County park, contains a wide variety of plant communities, from marsh and riverine swamp along Haw Creek to longleaf slash pine and pasture in the northeastern reach of this tract.

Wildlife viewing:
