Initially, the North Lake Jesup Tract and the Marl Bed Flats Tract were purchased to meet legislative requirements established for mitigation of the Seminole County portion of the Eastern Beltway. Now, along with the East Lake Jesup Tract, these lands contribute to the enhancement and protection of water resources and increased flood protection and the protection of ecological functions and habitats in the Lake Jesup area. The Marl Bed Flats Tract was jointly acquired with Seminole County, and the countys Wilderness Park with boat ramp is located on the southwest corner of this tract. Lake Jesup is mostly composed of floodplain wetlands and wooded hammocks.
