Management Programs of Tomoka Marsh Aquatic Preserve Quick Topics
Bulow Creek before restoration

Sand deposition in Corona Canal

  • Resource Management

    Resource management at Tomoka Marsh Aquatic Preserve focuses on cooperating with other agencies on habitat restoration projects and invasive plant management. Recently, preserve staff consulted with Volusia County Mosquito Control on their Bulow Creek restoration project at Corona Canal.

  • Education, Outreach and Community Involvement

    Education and outreach efforts at the preserve are limited due to a lack of staff. As a result, they are focused on posting educational signs and cooperating with other regional programs, such as those at the state parks.

  • Research and Monitoring

    Preserve staff recently completed three year bird survey of Tomoka and Halifax Rivers. Through the survey, they documented 180 species including numerous listed species such as the wood stork, bald eagle, least tern, snowy egret, little blue heron, roseate spoonbill and reddish egret. Numerous migratory birds such as the endangered peregrine falcon and piping plover were observed feeding or resting in marsh habitat found in the aquatic preserve. Ten species of duck, including the common golden eye were observed.
