The Disney Wilderness Preserve

Disney Wilderness Preserve

The Disney Wilderness Preserve in Poinciana is a conservation preserve that encompasses around 12,000 acres in an area that sits in a region of developed land. This area was purchased to replace the habitats that
were lost by construction of Walt Disney World.

The 12,000 acres was a former ranch in Osceola County and now it is a untouched beautiful preserve that is owned and operated by The Nature Conservancy. The preserve is now a national model for sustainable development.

Home to more than 1,000 different types of plants and animal the Disney Preserve plays a big part in the ecosystem of the Everglades. The wetlands also play a major role in replenishing the ground water and reclaimed water that the
local community uses for irrigation.

This preserve is an awesome place to bring the family and spend the day and enjoy the beauty that Florida offers it people.
