Nature Preserve Area

Ballantrae’s Nature Preserve, a 23.75 acre , natural preservation area is available for our resident's enjoyment. Designed to protect native foliage and the small native animals that live in our Florida area, our preserve is home to many species of birds, squirrels, rabbits and the protected gopher tortoise.  During a walk on our nature trails, you may observe owls, hawks, woodpeckers and other bird species. Numerous raccoons, armadillos, squirrels, rabbits and other small mammals also live in our preserve.  
During the rainy season, a family of otters has been seen. Even the occasional alligator, fox or bobcat may be encountered. Native plants are allowed to propagate freely while all invasive and non-native species are removed.

The Preserve has a network of maintained walking trails, easily accessible for casual strollers and hikers alike.  A printable map of the marked preserve trails is on the Ballantrae website for use by all.  We recommend you stay on the paths so as not to harm the natural plant species or encounter an occasional venomous and non-venomous snakes or insects. The varied species of reptiles and insects which are native to Florida do live in the preserve and help maintain the natural balance of rodents and insects.  Ponds and wetlands, some of which are impassable in the rainy season are found in the preserve and are indicated on the map.

The Preserve is bounded on the west by Stonehaven Rd, on the south by Montrose Ln, east, the Martin County line, and on the North, Van Kleef Avenue. Access to the Preserve is at the end of Montrose at the cul-de-sac, and through the entry behind the mailboxes at the Montrose/Stonehaven junction. Walk toward the hedges or tree line to the marked opening and access to walking paths. Please avoid the property of others while doing so. 


We encourage all Nature Lovers and people who are eager to learn about our original Florida  Flora and Fauna to take a nice stroll thru our preserve and enjoy Nature at its unmarred beauty.

Please bring a camera, binoculars, a litter bag and follow the credo:  “Observe and do not disturb”

Sincerely,

The Ballantrae Preserve Committee:

Ron Klowden, Chairperson
Kathleen Schnoor, Member
David Walker,  Member
