Jumping Gully Preserve

The 598 acre Jumping Gully Conservation Area is located in Spring Hill, near US Highway 41 adjacent to Crews Lake Wilderness Park within the North Pasco to Crossbar critical linkage area. Historical land cover consisted of sandhill, scrub and flatwoods. However, in the 1940¿s much of the property was cleared and converted into pasture for cattle ranching. Still present on site is a large, mostly undisturbed, wet prairie which is the headwaters of the Pithlachascotee River. Due to its location, this site acts as a wildlife corridor that connects Starkey Wilderness and Crossbar Ranch conservation lands. The property provides habitat for numerous grassland dependant wildlife species such as gopher tortoise, sandhill crane, kestrel, eastern meadowlark and wintering grasshopper sparrows. The wet prairie provides habitat for many types of wading birds and larger wildlife such as deer, fox, and coyote frequent the site as they move within the landscape. The preserve is open to the public for passive recreational activities such as hiking and wildlife observation.
