Directions to FWC Royce Unit

From the corner of US 27 and CR 621 in Lake Placid, go east on CR 621 1.7 miles to Hallmark Avenue on the left.  Turn left on Hallmark.  After 3.6 miles the road makes a sharp left and sharp right and changes names to Royce Ranch Ave.  After a total of 5.0 miles on Hallmark/Royce Ranch Ave, Royce Ranch is on the left, marked by an FWC logo.  Turn left onto the driveway and follow it back to the offices. 


 

The FWC Royce Unit is part of the Lake Wales Ridge Wildlife and Environmental Area. The most distinctive natural community on the Lake Wales Ridge is scrub, home to one of the rarest collections of plants and animals in the world. Healthy scrub has the appearance of a miniature forest with trees seldom taller than 10 feet and open patches of sand. The WEA contains 20 of 22 federally listed plant species known to occur on the Lake Wales Ridge.
