Babcock Ranch Eco-Tour takes you on 90 minute eco-tour through the Babcock Ranch. You will travel through the working cattle ranch and learn its history, wander through Florida eco-systems, all the while getting up close and personal with the local wildlife. You will be amazed at all the wildlife you will see and the history and knowledge of our guides. Enjoy the ride!!
The Crescent B Ranch is still a working cattle ranch. With over 14,000 acres in pasture land, the horse is vital to the ranch operation. Wild turkeys can be spotted in both pine flatwoods and on the fingers of the prairies. On the prairies and at the edges of the pine flatwoods, you might spot the occasional caracara. They frequently are seen mixed in with flocks of local vultures.
In addition to our beef cattle, you may see “Cracker Cattle”. Cracker Cattle are descendants of the cattle brought here by the early Spanish settlers.
The soft shell turtle is indeed an amphibious oddity!
The magnificent osprey is often found along the edge of the Telegraph Creek. If you watch closely you may see one swoop down to catch a fish! Sandhill Cranes are a frequent visitor to the prairie, along with herds of native deer that roam the property. One of the larger members of the squirrel family, the fox squirrel is usually spotted in the pine flatwoods, in which pine cones make up a large part of their diet.
There is a picnic area, gift shop and exhibits to enjoy as well. So come on out and get back to nature!
