Explore peaceful places set aside for conservation on lands protected by county natural lands programs, where passive recreation, like hiking, birding, and photography, is permitted. Natural Lands programs in Florida are managed by county governments, and their primary purpose is to set aside lands for the sake of wildlife and habitat protection. To protect wildlife, pets are often prohibited from access. Always check ahead if you normally bring your dog on hikes.
