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.
