Helen and Allan Cruickshank Sanctuary

Helen and Allan Cruickshank

Rockledge, Florida 32955, United States

Created By: Environmentally Endangered Lands Program


The land for the sanctuary was purchased in 1995 through the Environmentally Endangered Lands (EEL) Program. The sanctuary is named after two celebrated conservationists, Helen G. and Allan D. Cruickshank.

Helen was an award-winning nature writer and photographer. She wrote a number of books, primarily about birds, including multiple publications about Florida species. Her husband Allan was a nationally recognized ornithologist, photographer, and teacher who worked at the National Audubon Society for almost 40 years. The Cruikshanks played a major role in gaining public support for the protection and restoration of native ecosystems in Brevard County.

The sanctuary is home to many protected species, including some that are federally endangered. For this reason, pets are not allowed and feeding animals is prohibited. Please take only photographs and leave only footprints.
