Paynes Prairie





This beautiful central Florida preserve was the first in the state and is known for its diverse community of plants and animals.






William Bartram the great American explorer and naturalist called Paynes Prairie "The great Alachua Savannah" when he first wrote about it in 1774. With over 20 distinct biological communities, over 270 bird species and home to wild bison and Spanish horse and cattle, Paynes Prairie is certainly one of the top places to view wildlife in Florida.
