Life. More Natural.

Land conservation is an important component of Ave Maria. Nearly 17,000 acres comprising 26 square miles, have been set aside and restored to their natural state. During the restoration of these lands over 300,000 native plants were reintroduced to the area that now serve as the backdrop of the town. Ave Maria also eradicated all exotic and nuisance species that were present during the beginning stages of the development.

Today, incredible nature views are afforded from various points throughout Ave Maria including such native species as coastal spike rush, pickerel weed, golden canna lily, wire grass, cord grass, broom grass, wax myrtle, Florida privet, beauty berry, red maple, slash pine, oak trees, cypress trees and more. For those interested in the numbers: 9 species of herbaceous/aquatic plants were introduced; 8 species of shrubs were planted; 6 species of grasses can now be found and 4 species of canopy trees dot the town.

Over 100 miles of walking, biking, and nature trails wind throughout the town, affording our residents the opportunity to revel in the beautiful outdoors. See all of this and more on an Orange Jeep Tour, a guided 90-minute eco adventure.
