Roberson Ranch

1001 Roberson Rnch Rd, St. Cloud, FL 34773

Description The Roberson Ranch is 640 Acres in Osceola County. The property is fully within the Osceola Pine Savannas Florida Forever Project boundary and adjoins the Triple N Wildlife Management Area (WMA), managed by the Florida Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWCC). The property features 429 Upland Acres and 211 Wetland Acres. The land cover consists of Improved Pastures, Dry Prairie, Shrub and Brushland, Mixed Upland Nonforested, Pine Flatwoods, Coniferous Plantations, Mixed Wetland Hardwoods, Cypress, Freshwater Marshes, Wet Prairies, and Mixed Scrub-Shrub Wetland. A wide range of wildlife uses the open rangelands of pastures, pine flatwoods, and palmetto prairies. This project will conserve a large part of these lands, maintaining a link of natural lands between the existing conservation areas. Additionally, preserving the Roberson Ranch will help ensure the survival of wildlife that depend on these lands including swallow-tailed kite and the caracara. Acquisition of the property for conservation would eliminate the developmental potential of homesites that would rely on well and septic systems having a detrimental impact on the ecology of the area. Osceola Pine Savannas FFBOT Project The project covers an area of old beach ridges and intervening swales, with high-quality, longleaf-pine flatwoods interrupted by cypress strands, cypress domes, and wet prairies. There are also extensive dry prairies and patches of oak or sand pine scrub, all of which are natural communities of the Kissimmee Prairie. It is an important habitat to wildlife requiring extensive natural areas such as sandhill crane, wood storks, crested caracara, and several more, including the federally endangered Florida grasshopper sparrow. Much of the land is used as unimproved range and disturbed areas are mainly improved pastures in the south end. Two archaeological sites are known. Any construction of roads or ditches will destroy the unique character of the project, but development pressure is low. This project may also help complete the Florida National Scenic Trail, a statewide non-motorized trail that crosses a number of Florida Forever project sites.
