The Masters Tract Stormwater Treatment Facility is a 272-acre parcel of land owned by St. Johns County adjacent to Deep Creek, a tributary of the Lower St. Johns River. In an effort to reduce high nitrogen and phosphorus levels in the Lower St. Johns River Basin and Deep Creek, the county designed and built a system of wetlands to drain and filter stormwater runoff from the surrounding agricultural and residential areas. Situated near Deep Creek Conservation Area, St Johns County staff manage water levels in the wetland cells to mimic the natural wet and dry seasons.

Sandhill Cranes, numerous waders, migrating warblers, and raptors are all on the list at this very special location.

Wear good walking shoes and a hat, and bring sunscreen, bug spray, water in your reusable bottle, binoculars, and a scope if you have one.

NOTE: there are no restrooms available at this site.

How to find us:Meet at the intersection of Hub Bailey Road and State Road 13
