The Nature Conservancy (TNC) protects this 4,869-acre gem that borders the edge of Florida’s oldest and highest landmass, the venerable Lake Wales Ridge. Considered the most ancient part of the state, the Lake Wales Ridge is an enormous sand hill running north and south. Some experts believe it was the first place to emerge after the ocean covering the Florida peninsula receded. Others contend that this narrow ridge was not covered by waves but was an isolated island where plants and animals evolved in isolation.
