Argo Ranch

Gopher tortoise and scrub jay surveys were conducted in a variety of habitats including palmetto prairie, pine flatwoods, scrubby pine flatwoods, and xeric scrub on this 1,726� acre property.  The survey documented the presence of over 700 gopher tortoise burrows and one scrub jay family.  These results facilitated the preparation of a site plan that allowed both of these listed species to be retained on-site in a vegetatively diverse 139� acre preserve.
