Fred C. Babcock/Cecil M. Webb Wildlife Management Area
Explore diverse recreational opportunities, from hunting and fishing to hiking and wildlife viewing.
Red-cockaded woodpeckers, northern bobwhite and fox squirrels are found at this Great Florida Birding and Wildlife Trail site.
Regular prescribed burns in the prairies, marshes and pine flatwoods help maintain habitat for wildlife.
Excellent management has transformed this site, a source of valuable timber prior to state acquisition, into a healthy expanse of wildlife-rich habitats.
This large WMA is located about 15 miles northwest of Ft. Myers, or five miles from Punta Gorda.
