Ocala National Forest to Osceola National Forest Corridor (O20)
The Ocala to Osceola Wildlife Corridor (O2O) is a 100-mile-long, 1.6-million-acre, landscape of public and private lands that connect the Ocala and Osceola National Forests. Through partial restoration of the Ocklawaha River, 7500 acres of floodplain forest will be restored enhancing the connectivity of this wildlife corridor for black bear, Florida panther, deer, wild turkeys and other wildlife. Once the forest has been restored, hikers, campers, birders, trail riders and hunters will enjoy thousands of acres of connected forests, enhancing the Florida Trail, Cross Florida Greenway, Caravelle Ranch and other Ocala National Forest Trails. In addition, thousands of additional acres of upstream and downstream forests will be revived that have been highly stressed due to the Rodman Dam.
