One of the land’s natural features is Indian Lake. Marwick pointed to a great blue heron gracefully landing along the lake’s bank. He turned his attention to a nearby 60-foot-wide sinkhole.

“This is an important part of the recharge,” Marwick said about the area where water percolates down through the soil as it returns to the Floridan Aquifer from which drinking water is drawn. “This property probably has 40-50 sinkholes on it.”
