This 8.2-acre preserve, purchased in 2002 through the Environmentally Sensitive Lands Protection Program, shares the same name as the street where it is located.
The name has historical significance originating with Dr. Fred Albee, an early settler of Nokomis.

While exploring the preserve’s network of trails, visitors may see diverse natural communities, including maritime hammock, tidal swamp and scrubby flatwoods.
Visitors can observe gopher tortoises, grey squirrels, and an assortment of wading birds such as the Little Blue Heron, Yellow-Crowned Night Heron, Snowy Egret, White Ibis and Wood Stork.
