Malabar Scrub Sanctuary
1501 Malabar Road Malabar, FL 32950
Town of Malabar: The variety of habitats found on the 395-acre Malabar Scrub Sanctuary make it an ideal place for visitors to learn how wetland and upland communities interact.
The sanctuary’s protected habitats include xeric (dry) hammock, scrub, scrubby flatwoods, pine flatwoods, sand pine scrub, ponds, sloughs, and depression marshes. Trails weave through many of these natural communities, including several areas recently treated with prescribed fires- Fire is a natural factor in many of Florida’s ecosystems, and hikers will be amazed at the lush, green regrowth in areas that were burned only a short time ago.
The sanctuary is a refuge for the Florida scrub-jay, gopher tortoise, and Eastern indigo snake. Amenities: ADA Access Parking, Restrooms, Pavilion, Playground
