The Preservation Fund was created to respond to our rapidly disappearing landscape and raise funds fast. It supports the crux of our mission to preserve and restore the most treasured lands in our region.
Ocala to Osceola (O2O) Wildlife Corridor
At North Florida Land Trust we believe wildlife need big, wild, and connected landscapes that provide for their needs to find food, reproduce, and raise their young. By building an interconnected corridor from Ocala National Forest through Camp Blanding to Osceola National Forest, we can create a landscape that permanently provides for the needs of some of Florida’s most threatened species.
Bogey Creek Preserve
After nearly two decades of conversations, negotiations, and yes, some blood, sweat and a few tears, Bogey Creek Preserve is finally a reality. North Florida Land Trust’s first publicly accessible park, Bogey Creek Preserve is a 75-acre gem in the Pumpkin Hill neighborhood of north Jacksonville.
Amelia Island residents care about a green, vibrant and resilient community. North Florida Land Trust has partnered with the City of Fernandina Beach to identify and acquire properties across the island to serve as park space and wildlife habitats, which will add to the vibrancy of the area. Find out more about how we can preserve the remaining natural resources on Amelia Island, forever.
Brewster Nurses Gallery
Brewster was built in 1885 and was Jacksonville’s first hospital for African Americans and a training school for nurses. The gallery exhibit is curated by the Brewster Nurses and Community Alumni Association and features photographs, documents, and other memorabilia that showcase the history of Brewster Hospital.
In order to preserve the natural heritage of North Florida, we need to protect natural, historic and agricultural resources. Within our Preservation Portfolio we identified 15 discrete areas in North Florida that we are targeting for conservation. These areas protect our highest quality waterways, wildlife habitat, historic areas, farms and forests.
