A protected property no bigger than a quarter of an acre could help turn the tides for a critically endangered Florida plant thanks to a joint effort by Conservation Florida, the Florida Native Plant Society, and the Putnam Land Conservancy.
People from all backgrounds explored the land, engaging in science and learning about some of Florida’s most special places. Participants enjoyed guided hikes, kayak tours, swamp buggy rides, snorkel tours, botany lessons, and archeological walks led by experts.
As Conservation Florida grows to meet the opportunities and challenges ahead, we remain an accredited land trust committed to long-term stability, sound finances, ethical conduct, responsible governance, and lasting stewardship.
Participation in these programs puts Conservation Florida’s leadership team at the forefront of Florida’s emerging trends and natural resource solutions. This means CFL will be better prepared to serve you in protecting Florida’s natural and agricultural landscapes for future generations.

“We’re excited about the new name because it clearly represents what we do and where we do it,” said Traci Deen, Conservation Florida’s executive director. “The shorter name is more descriptive, straightforward, and memorable.”
