"The cleanest and purest of any river . . .
almost as transparent as the air we breathe."
-Naturalist William Bartram, 1774

Andrews Wildlife Management Area is an oasis in the rapidly developing Lower Suwannee River region. Of the estimated 20,000 to 25,000 acres of upland hardwood forest that once existed along the lower Suwannee, the last large tract is located within the 3,582-acre Andrews WMA.

Andrews's old-growth upland hardwood forest shows little evidence of human disturbance. Its well-developed canopy with trees in various stages of growth and decay provides food, cover, and nesting and denning sites for many wildlife species. Here you can enjoy small, high-quality hunts and excellent fishing along the banks of the Suwannee. Hike, jog, or bike along pleasant well-marked trails.


 



FWC Facts:
When the weather is very cold, a group of bluebirds, and several other bird species, will occasionally roost together in a nest cavity for warmth.
