Hilochee Wildlife Management Area

Although very close to US 27 and the Lake Wales Ridge; Hilochee is within an area called the Green Swamp, a critical hydrologic resource, encompassing the headwaters of the Withlacoochee, Little Withlacoochee, Ocklawaha, Hillsborough and Peace rivers and serving as a major recharge area for the Floridan aquifer.

Your efforts removing these invasive plants will help allow native plants to thrive in this wildlife area!
