The Sawmill Slough Preserve is a 382-acre natural area located on the University of North Florida campus. The area was designated as a preserve in 2006 by President John A. Delaney and the Board of Trustees, after years of continued requests from the university community
The Preserve includes a wetland habitat stretching through the western portion of the campus and additional small areas of drier habitat, including some longleaf pine-turkey oak woodlands.
The Preserve Digital Archive was created to be a scientific, cultural and historical archive for research and special projects involving the Sawmill Slough Preserve. The Preserve Digital Archive includes:
- Searchable ecological inventory
- Historical documentation
- Digital trail interpretations
- Archive of works from the Pre[serve] Art Exhibition
The Preserve Digital Archive was developed through the generous support of the Cummer Family Foundation.
