Preserving the natural areas, historic resources and working lands of North Florida.
North Florida Land Trust is a highly skilled and experienced not-for-profit organization focusing on the preservation of land for future generations. We protect private and public lands through land donation, acquisition, and other strategies. Our scope of knowledge and experience combined with our regional footprint give us a deep understanding of how community, people, government and business integrate within the environmental value chain.
We can help you protect your land and preserve it for the future. We can help find the best possible preservation program for your property. It might be the donation of a conservation easement to the land trust or it could be the outright donation or sale of the property as a new park.
Throughout the years, North Florida Land Trust has preserved thousands of acres of land in Northeast Florida. We focus our land preservation efforts on Baker, Bradford, Clay, Columbia, Duval, Flagler, Marion, Nassau, Putnam, St. Johns, Union and Volusia counties. We will work on an as-needed based elsewhere in North Florida.
Preserving your land into perpetuity is not only great for the environment, but there are some great financial benefits for you. You could receive a permanent tax incentive by donating a conservation easement. Land donation could also provide estate tax relief.
North Florida Land Trust has identified more than 112,000 acres of land in all seven of our focus counties that are in critical need of preservation. Our Preservation Portfolio puts a dollar amount on land conservation and highlights the return on investment. This document shows the ecosystem benefits of preserving these lands far outweighs the cost of acquisition.
North Florida Land Trust has designed our own strategic conservation methodology to ensure we are preserving the highest quality natural areas.
Strategic Conservation Planning is the process by which conservation agencies, community governments and non-profits can rank and prioritize natural resources and determine the significance of those resources toward their own goals.
