The Enchanted Forest Sanctuary was created and managed under the Brevard County's Environmentally Endangered Lands Program referendum. The referendum was established by voters in 1990 to protect and preserve the rich Biological Diversity of Brevard County for future generations. The Enchanted Forest Sanctuary operates in partnership with the Friends of the Enchanted Forest to provide hands on educational experiences for all visitors. 

Admission to the sanctuary and education center is free and open to the public Tuesday through Sunday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.  Come out to visit soon!
