Stokes Landing Conservation Area
North of the St. Augustine Regional Airport, east of U.S. 1 in St. Johns County.
This was the first District acquisition within the coastal basin of the Tolomato River. This conservation area was purchased to protect water resources, wetlands and wildlife habitat. Stokes Landing serves as an outdoor classroom for environmental education, as it has been visited by area students and their teachers over the years. An observation platform for wildlife and marsh viewing was rebuilt by St. Johns County students. The students also developed interpretive trails.
The conservation area is home to wood storks, red-tailed hawks, wading birds and otters.
