What People Are Saying

“Ashton Biological Preserve is a jewel of upland habitat that is refuge to many species of reptiles, amphibians, birds, mammals, and insects. Their preserve will continue to be a safe haven surrounded by an ever degrading environment.”

– Tony Daly Crews, President, Eastern Diamondback Conservation Foundation


“Volunteering at the Preserve gives me a chance to protect threatened species and learn about North Florida ecosystems. I go out to the Preserve to experience the natural world and learn about native species. The Preserve is a great place to get hands-on experience observing animals in the wild.”

– Ian, UF PhD Student, Agricultural and Biological Engineering
