From Ice Age animals to Native Americans to early pioneers, Pine Island Conservation Area has a rich history. Mastodon tusks, pottery sherds, and 19th century farm tools found on site help piece together the story of this special place.

Come inside the oldest standing home in Brevard County, the 1875 Sams family cabin. Travel back in time here and along the paved trail where interactive exhibits highlight Pine Island's many past inhabitants.

Enjoy hiking, biking, horseback riding, fishing, canoeing, and kayaking through five different habitats and over six miles of trails. Wading birds, bald eagles, alligators, manatees, and bobcats are just a few of the animals that you may see. The Environmentally Endangered Lands Program and the St. Johns River Water Management District jointly own this 947-acre site.

    This was a great outing! Even though it was still kind of hot during the afternoon, it was very interesting to learn Merritt Island history, and a beautiful place to visit.

    The tour starts at 3pm. But we are meeting at 2pm in Melbourne to get there in time, because it takes about a 45 min drive.

    August 2, 2014

  • Gena

      August 1, 2014

  • Lucy A.

    Today is Thursday and although I have not RSVP I am considering going. However, I am confused on the meeting place. Is it still Walgreens? If possible I would like to get a ride.

    July 31, 2014

    • Lucy A.

      I just confirmed that I will be joining the group plus one. Is anyone meeting at Sam's at 192?

      August 1, 2014

  • Noneen

    We will need at least 2, maybe three cars to go up to Merritt Island. There are 1 or 2 more joining me. This is great, everyone!

    August 1, 2014

  • Nancy

  • Noneen

    It takes about 45 minutes to drive from Walgreens, so we probably need to meet there about 1:45pm to make sure we get to the cabin by 2:30pm.

    July 30, 2014

  • Gena

      I will meet them there but will not leave my car there as they will tow it away specially if you leave it there for so many hrs as it will be very obvious you are not in Walgreen's all that time.

      July 29, 2014

    • Cynthia "Cyndie" W.

      I definitely need to carpool

      July 29, 2014

  • Nancy

    I just called the Walgreens and spoke to the manager Diana, and she said it would be ok to park close to US1, I told her it would be about 5 cars. She said to come in and let them know when we arrive. If worse comes to worse, across the street there is a Starbucks, I think, and behind there is a huge vacant parking lot where Bank of America used to be. So that could be plan B, just in case.

    1 · July 29, 2014

  • Cynthia "Cyndie" W.

    I signed up to go but I will need a ride. My car was broken down for three months but praise God got repaired but the transmission is starting to go so I stay close to home with it. Noneen has my number to call if someone can give me a ride. I can meet anyone anywhere in our local area Palm Bay and Melbourne. Would be so grateful. Thanks

    July 27, 2014

    • Noneen

      And yes, Lisa, I'm including you! It seems we should all be able to fit into two cars.

      My son's car was towed away from Walgreen's. They do have a sign in their parking lot.

      July 29, 2014

    We can meet up in sam's parking lot

    July 23, 2014

  • Nancy

    I just added directions for the Sams house tour.

    July 27, 2014

  • Nancy

    I just called and here is some info: Sat at 3pm is their regular tour, so even though we have 7 people they are doing a tour anyway. There may be other visitors as well. The tour is for the white house. The little cabin, pictured above is called 'Sams Cabin' and is open most of the time, so we can tour that after the white house. We need to be there at 3pm so if we are gonna meet up somewhere to car pool we should meet earlier. I'm gonna change the time now to 2:30 just in case.

    July 24, 2014

    • Susan M.

      Thanks Nancy, I will meet you all there.

      July 24, 2014

  • Nancy changed the time from 2:45 PM to 2:30 PM

    July 24, 2014

  • Nancy

    Ok thanks for the info Susan.

    July 24, 2014

  • Susan M.

    Hi Nancy, Actually, I just noticed that on the top of the post it says "meet at entrance". That answered my question:) The phone number is (321)[masked] Patricia Tierney is the lady I spoke with.

    July 24, 2014

  • Nancy

    Hi Susan, I sent you an email. Will update for everyone soon.

    July 24, 2014

  • Susan M.

    Are we going as a group? Spoke to Patricia Tierney and she said if it's more than 15 people she needs to know so she can arrange a tour for us. So, if anybody has a detailed information, would you please let me know. Thanks.

    July 24, 2014

  • Nancy

    That's a good suggestion Frank, but I am at Eau Gallie, how about the Walgreens at Eau Gallie and US1.

    July 23, 2014

  • Nancy

    Hey Frank, that's a good idea, we can meet somewhere in Melbourne and save some gas.

    1 · July 21, 2014
