You are Invited to Visit an Active Sinkhole

The 154-acre property known as Wolfbranch Sink Preserve was purchased by the Lake County Water Authority between 1992-1999 to protect the active sinkhole and high aquifer recharge land east of Mount Dora. The Wolfbranch Creek becomes active near the sinkhole when enough water falls within the watershed from Loch Leven to the north and the Preserve to the south.

Since the creek is full and Lake County’s biggest waterfall is active, the Water Authority is inviting the public to visit this seasonal phenomenon on October 20th & October 27th from 8:30 am – 12:30 pm.

  • Agency staff will be on handto give talks about the sinkhole and the Floridan Aquifer at 9:00 am, 10:00 am, 11:00 am and Noon.
  • Reservations are not needed.
  • For more information, please call the Lake County Water Authority at 352-343-3777, ext. 0.

Directions: South on Hwy 441 past Renninger’s Flea Market. After the CSX railroad trestle, take the first left and go east on Robie Avenue. Stay on Robie as the pavement turns to a dirt road. Stay on the unpaved road until you enter the property and follow signs to the sinkhole.
