A "Flagship" sanctuary, the Enchanted Forest Sanctuary is the first property that was purchased by the Brevard County EEL Program. This 470-acre forest is part of a sanctuary network that the EEL Program is working to establish in the county.  It was purchased because of its unique geology and high biological diversity. The sanctuary is one of the few places in Brevard where visitors can experience majestic oak hammocks, wetlands, and the Atlantic Coastal Ridge in one short hike. The Enchanted Forest Management and Education Center is a modern educational facility complete with classrooms, an interactive exhibit room, a library, offices, restrooms, and a gift shop. Hiking through any number of trails at the Enchanted Forest Sanctuary may bring you in sight of Florida scrub lizards, green anoles, gopher tortoises, bobcats, woodpeckers, and a variety of butterflies. The Enchanted Forest Sanctuary is also rich in local history. Cultural features such as the Addison/Ellis Canal and the Hernandez-Capron Trail tell the story of Brevard County’s past.

Located in the southern limits of the City of Titusville, the Enchanted Forest Sanctuary preserves a diversity of natural habitats. Several miles of hiking trails allow visitors to enjoy the natural beauty of the region.

Wildlife observation, nature photography, and hiking are popular recreational activities. The Management & Education Center interprets the Sanctuary's unique natural features for visitors of all ages and abilities.

There are five basic habitat types: oak scrub, mesic and hydric hammock, wet prairie, and pine flatwood. Wildlife species found here include the Eastern indigo snake, Florida scrub lizard, gopher tortoise, white-tailed deer, and bobcat.

A wonderful wealth of plant life also abounds as both temperate (northern) and subtropical (southern) species grow in the Sanctuary together.

The Hernandez-Capron Trail and the Addison/Ellis Canal are outstanding cultural resources. These features tell stories that offer visitors a peek into Brevard's unique history.
