Our mission is to Protect the wildlife, Restore the habitat, and Engage the public. Hundred Acre Hollows is home to some incredible species of wildlife. We protect the wildlife by encouraging citizen science endeavors and by planting native flowers that our pollinators love.
Gopher Tortoises are a vulnerable species that exist in large numbers on our land. They are a keystone species, which means that many other species depend upon for survival. Protecting these beautiful animals is a top priority among our organization.
When you visit us at our Sunset in the Hollows events, you’ll see our two beautiful gardens that are full of native plants. Near the Rock Springs entrance is the Keep Brevard Beautiful garden. Then, in the southeast corner, you’ll find our Audubon Garden. Both are beautiful examples of how we’ve both restored the habitat and created an environment friendly to pollinators like birds, bees, and more.
We also see many other species on a regular basis within the Hollows. Both deer and bobcats are regular visitors, as are many birds including raptors such as Cooper’s hawks and red-shouldered hawks. Songbirds are common, including warblers, mockingbirds, sparrows, and even a bobolink. We’re also home to many snakes, lizards, and insects. Click here to explore our animals.
