Floraglades Foundation

Our Preserves

Floraglades Perserve encompasses 80 acres in Glades County, Florida. The land is privately owned, but managed by Floraglades Foundation. Deed restrictions guarantee it will never be developed. It was originally established by the late Jesse Freeling, a friend and associate of Marjory Stoneman Douglas. Its heavily wooded terrain includes a cypress and hardwood slough supporting diverse upland and wetland flora. An outstanding feature is a virgin cypress tree.

Moya Preserve, owned by Floraglades Foundation, encompasses 120 acres in Glades County, Florida. It is heavily wooded with varied terrain. Running through the center is Jack's Branch, a seasonally active waterway. Among its notable features are nesting swallow-tailed kites and abundant alligators.
