Green Gables is a historic site located on 1.15 acres of prime riverfront green space. There is every kind of bird, the river with all its natural beauty and established trees, some dating back to the 1800's. Through the dedication of many volunteers, the grounds and home have already been enjoyed by thousands of visitors. In just a few years, Green Gables has become a vibrant hub of activity for our community.
More than 140 species of birds have access to use the grounds at Green Gables as a nesting, roosting, feeding, or loafing area.
A variety of fish species utilize the Indian River. Surveys list 782 fish species for east central Florida, with at least half of this amount occurring at some point of their life history in the Indian River Lagoon. Over 200 fish species are known to occur in the Indian River including smalltooth sawfish sturgeon, pipefish, goby, rivulus, and American eel. Environmentalists will be happy to know fish using the Indian River as their home include tarpon, spotted sea trout, flounder, black mullet, red and black drum, ladyfish, mackerel, and bluefish.
The Indian River serves as an important site for the recovery of federal and state listed threatened and endangered species. Green Gables location and habitat features are important for the future of 14 federally listed threatened and endangered species, as well as for the future of 45 species listed by the State of Florida
