Premise
“Galt Preserve is a habitat restoration project on 265 acres that is successfully supporting native plants, birds and animals on southern Pine Island. Often a good place to see Florida butterflies. Galt features 2.5 miles of hiking trails and boardwalks, a kayak and canoe launch, fishing pier, picnic pavilions, restroom and a paved parking area. The preserve consists of 12 plant communities, including mangrove swamp and mesic flatwoods. The preserve is also home to a variety of bird and animal species, including bald eagle, bobcat and American alligator. Located just south of the much smaller Pine Island Flatwoods Preserve. ”
