The EEL Program is committed to providing the public with opportunities to enjoy the beauty of Brevard county's natural areas. The best way to protect a sanctuary and to provide public access to the site is to support passive recreation activities. These are activities that do not abuse the natural resources, biological diversity, or environmental qualities of a site.
Examples of passive recreation activities provided on EEL sanctuaries follow:
- Guided nature tours
- Wildlife observation
- Canoeing and kayaking
- Nature photography
- Bird watching
- Horseback riding
- Catch-and-release fishing
These are examples only and not all activities will occur on every sanctuary.
Pets and Smoking are not allowed in EEL Program Sanctuaries and Conservation Areas. We hope you understand that these rules are necessary to protect and preserve our sensitive ecosystems.
Check out some great opportunities for trail running and hiking. This brochure features six EEL Sanctuaries that offer great natural scenery, compacted trail surfaces and very little sugar sand.
