The Forest Service, U.S. De-
partment of Agriculture, is
dedicated to the principle of
multiple use management
of the Nation's forest re-
sources for sustained yields
of wood, water, forage, wild-
life, and recreation. Through
forestry research, coopera-
tion with the States and
private forest owners, and
management of the National
Forests and National Grass-
lands, it strives-as directed
by Congress-to provide in-
creasingly greater service
to a growing Nation.

Florida's three National Forests are part of the 174
National Forests and National Grasslands totalling 187
million acres in 44 states and Puerto Rico. The Ocala
National Forest, established November 24,1908, is the
oldest National Forest east of the Mississippi River.
The Osceola was established July 10, 1931, and the
Apalachicola, May 13, 1936.
The National Forests in Florida are administered by a
Forest Supervisor and five District Rangers. Additional

Br ell Bay Wilderness is the only National Forest
v..&rnponent in Florida in the Wilderness Preservation
System. The 23,432-acre area on the Aialachicola
National Forest is mainly a large fresh water swamp
with several hundred acres of pine, mixed hardwoods,
and titi. A sheet of tannin-tinted water, only a few
inches deep, moves slowly across the inner area.
Visitors not familiar with this type of terrain and
Florida's climate are advised to check with the District
Ranger in Crawfordville before venturing into the
