North Florida Land Trust, in collaboration with Clay County, is hosting workshops to get community input on the proposed Clay County Land Conservation Program. The next workshop is on April 13 from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Middleburg-Clay Hill Library at 2245 Aster Ave. in Middleburg followed by a final workshop on April 19 from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Clay County Administration Building at 477 Houston St. in Green Cove Springs.

The workshops are being held to give the community the opportunity to learn more about the proposed Clay County Land Conservation Program and to give feedback to the Clay County Board of County Commissioners on the natural resources that matter most to them. NFLT, a nonprofit land conservation organization, is collaborating with Clay County to develop land conservation policies, evaluate appropriate projects, and implement a successful land conservation program.

All workshops are open to the public and neighbors are encouraged to attend. Any person needing a special accommodation to participate in the public meetings should contact the Clay County ADA Coordinator at (904) 278-4719 or by mail at Post Office Box 1366, Green Cove Springs, Florida, 32043 no later than three (3) days prior to the workshop.
