Without the excellent work of the N. FL Land Trust, developers would have their say, and little or no land would be preserved in its natural (or nearly natural, if you allow for trails, sanitary facilities, etc. to make visitors comfortable) state. They don’t just ask people to donate land, they assist with conservation easements for tax breaks, allowing current family to remain on the land, and they also purchase parcels at market value. They identify parcels based on a number of criteria, including recreational value as well as ecological importance. They are AMAZING!
I’ve been volunteering for NFLT’s Team Terrapin for 2 seasons now as well as a few events throughout the year. I can tell you, these people really care about what they’re doing and they are the nicest people. I’ve been volunteering with different places since high school and I’ve never felt so appreciated by an organization like I have with NFLT. They really go out of their way to show you that you are important to them and they appreciate your help whether you’ve volunteered for years or a few hours. I’ll probably continue to work with them until I’m no longer physically able to.
The NFLT has been doing terrific work in northeast Florida conserving our rapidly diminishing wild areas. They recently negotiated the purchase of 57 acres near St. Augustine, which will be purchased by the State of Florida for conservation and did so in record time. Made it look easy, which is most definitely is not.
