Spot diverse wildlife species such as Florida scrub-jay, sandhill crane, Sherman’s fox squirrel and gopher tortoise. 

Habitat and Management

Restoring longleaf pine habitat and other management at Half Moon helps to protect the Floridan Aquifer, the source of most of Florida’s drinking water.


The site preserves features of 19th- and 20th-century use of the area by local inhabitants.
