The Guana River Wildlife Management Area is part of the Guana Tract, an expanse of public conservation and recreational lands including the 64,487-acre coastal Guana Tolomato Matanzas National Estuarine Research Reserve. Located midway between rapidly-growing Jacksonville and St. Augustine, the 9,815-acre Guana River Wildlife Management Area offers abundant opportunities for fishing, hunting, birding, and hiking. Genesis, as part of a continuing services contract with Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP), was engaged to assist in the development of two infrastructure elements to enhance the Wildlife Management Area.

First, the Equestrian area in the northwest portion of the Wildlife Management Area needed a restroom and handicapped parking to serve the users. Genesis provided full permitting of the facilities including St. Johns River Water Management District and St. Johns County. Secondly, a Handicapped Accessible Duck Blind was constructed adjacent to Booth’s Pond, and Genesis provided complete permitting for the accessible parking facility, route and duck blind including the Army Corps of Engineers, St. Johns River Water Management District and St. Johns County.
