Spend your days on Big Hickory Island
This preserve is an approximately 186-acre parcel directly south of Lovers Key State Park, along the Gulf of Mexico. It is along the Estero Bay portion of the Great Calusa Blueway Paddling Trail.
Big Hickory Island Preserve is made up of beaches, mangrove swamps and emerging mangrove islands surrounded by oyster beds. All are important habitats for shore and wading birds, mammals, reptiles and amphibians. Many state and federal endangered species use the preserve for foraging, resting and nesting including snowy plovers (Charadrius alexandrines), least terns (Sterna antillarum ) red knots (Calidris canutus) and loggerhead sea turtles (Caretta caretta).
The site includes an area to off load kayaks and canoes on the western portion of the preserve, and a primitive trail to a fishing access on the eastern portion
We are grateful that the work to repair the damage wrought by Hurricane Ian is already well underway and is of the highest priority to The Colony at Pelican Landing. Structures are sound. Our paradise will recover, as it always has. Landscaping, plantings, fairways, and beaches will be renourished and replanted.
