Crystal Springs Ranch

This working ranch borders Flagler State Wildlife Area to the north. With a flowing natural spring and two ponds, it is a lovely spot for viewing all kinds of wildlife. Rails can be found in some of the wetter areas, and the trees on the property are worth birding at any season. In addition, your opportunities for finding prairie birds are much better on this property than at the State Wildlife Area to the south. This is a destination along I-70 that no birder should miss!
