Daytona Beach -- Eubank Garden

Object Details

This six-acre property is located on the Halifax River, two blocks west of the Atlantic Ocean. It is unique because of its size (quite large for Florida), but especially because it has been maintained in its natural state as hammock land. It has hundreds of trees, including oak, bay, pine, magnolia, palm, cedar, and Florida orchid (the latter now considered invasive), and stands of bamboo, palmetto, sea grape, fern, and mangrove. It is home to numerous species of birds, including owls, osprey, and herons, and to butterflies, rabbits, possums, raccoons, and turtles. Over the years the effects of hurricanes as well as the growth of invasive vines have led the owners to initiate careful yet aggressive practices aimed at ensuring the growth of more desirable trees, such a live oaks, and the native flora. Natural dunes, another feature of the site, are aided in their survival by maintenance of lush vegetation and healthy trees as anchors and stabilizers. A "trail" to allow access to and viewing of this remarkable site has been created by the owner, its highlight being a view of the river upon nearing its end.
