Fort White - Planning Your Visit
There is something to see year-round at Fort White WEA. Fall and spring are good times to check the floodplain forest for neotropical migrants. Seasonal ponds attract wood ducks in the winter; summer specialties include Mississippi and swallow-tailed kites. Hiking is most pleasant in the cooler months. Blazing star, goldenrod, milkweed, aster and other fall wildflowers attract a variety of butterflies.
Fort White WEA is open to public access from 1½ hours before sunrise until 1½ hours after sunset. During archery and spring turkey seasons, only persons participating in the hunt are allowed access.
