Enchanted Forest Sanctuary Management and Education Center
This 428-acre sanctuary is the flagship of the EEL Program and was purchased because of its unique geology and high biological diversity. The sanctuary is one of the few places in Brevard where visitors can experience majestic oak hammocks, wetlands, and the Atlantic Coastal Ridge in one short hike. The Enchanted Forest Management and Education Center is a modern educational facility complete with classrooms, an interactive exhibit room, a library, offices, restrooms, and a gift shop. Hiking through any number of trails at the Enchanted Forest Sanctuary may bring you in sight of Florida scrub lizards, green anoles, gopher tortoises, bobcats, woodpeckers, and a variety of butterflies. The Enchanted Forest Sanctuary is also rich in local history. Cultural features such as the Addison/Ellis Canal and the Hernandez-Capron Trail tell the story of Brevard County’s past.
