Longleaf Pine Habitat
Saving Longleaf pine in the panhandle
Conservation Florida is focused on protecting some of the last ecologically-intact longleaf pine landscapes in the Southeastern United States. We aim to connect and add to large swaths of existing conservation areas like the Apalachicola National Forest, Blackwater River State Forest, and Eglin Air Force Base.
The longleaf pine ecosystem projects Conservation Florida is working to protect in this region total nearly 8,000 acres and will not only protect longleaf pine forests, but artesian springs and coastal habitats as well.
