Richard E. Becker Preserve!

Richard E. Becker Preserve

The Richard E. Becker Preserve is a jungle-like 13-acre preserve on Ten Mile Creek which is part of the head waters of the St. Lucie River North Fork. The site offers one half mile of hiking trails along the historical spoil mounds left when the creek was channelized and is where young and old alike can discover the mysterious and hidden life of the forest and river.

This preserve is undergoing a major ecological restoration project and will be closed to the public temporarily for the duration of this project. Call before you go to make sure the preserve is open! Contact Number: 772-462-2526, Address: 3398 Selvitz Road, Fort Pierce, Florida 34981

My wife Dolores and I and our two dogs, Bindi and Oreo went here after leaving the George LeStrange Preserve. It was getting dark but we had just enough sunlight left to see this preserve.

This is a nice little preserve with nice views and I believe there may even be a longer trail leading out of the preserve. It is not far from the George E. LeStrange Preserve. Just make a left when leaving LeStrange Preserve onto Selvitz Rd. and an immediate right and you are there! Have fun!
