In June 2012, Osceola County purchased the Cherokee Point Conservation Area with funds from the Environmental Lands Conservation Program, formally known as SAVE Osceola. The property consists of 183 acres hugging the shores of Lake Tohopekaliga, in the serene Goblet's Cove area. The property protects picturesque wet pastures and an upland peninsula. This site is frequently visited by wildlife, especially a variety of bird species, such as the endangered Everglades snail kite, Sandhill Crane, Bald Eagle, Limpkin, white pelican (winter) and several waterfowl species.
