Almanac Places to Visit
Frenchman's Forest Natural Area — Hardwood Hammock
hardwood entrance
Hardwoods — mostly live oaks — and cabbage palms dominate the entrance to Frenchman's Forest Natural Area. The trail here, however, is concrete and wheelchair accessible. When the county bought the property in the 1990s, cabbage palms and live oaks, mixed in with invasive Brazilian Pepper, made up most of the vegetation in places. The Brazilian pepper is gone, but the palms and oaks remain. In the cooler months, look for warblers here; jays and cardinals throughout the year — Photo by David Sedore
