St. Sebastian River Preserve State Park

St. Sebastian River Preserve State Park is a Florida state park, located just 88 miles (141 km) southeast of the famed Orlando, Florida. Please note that while this is not a designated stargazing area, the park is a suitable stargazing area and is open to the public year-round. The EarthSky reader who recommended this entry says “This site preserves open grassy forests of longleaf pine that were once commonplace throughout Florida. The pine flatwoods form a backdrop for other biological communities, including cypress domes, scrubby flatwoods, sandhills, and a beautiful strand swamp. These habitats are home to many native plants and animals, including 50 protected species. Photographers, bird-watchers, and nature enthusiasts can explore miles of trails on foot, bicycle, or horseback.” For more information, visit online or call the park at 321-953-5005.
