We envision a future where southwest Florida’s unique landscape is protected for the benefit of both nature and people. Generations to come will experience the rich natural bounty of our land and waters and develop personal connections to this place we love. Our Strategic Plan shares our roadmap for achieving our vision.
Conservation Foundation of the Gulf Coast works with you to save land, forever, preserving those special natural lands that shape our cultural heritage, make our region extraordinary, and our quality of life superb. We partner with landowners, businesses, and government to protect the character, natural integrity and biodiversity of the bays, beaches, barrier islands and their watersheds on Florida’s Gulf Coast. By purchasing natural areas, holding land conservation agreements and educating for responsible land and water stewardship, we protect the environmental excellence of our lands and waters, and preserve the natural beauty and enhance our collective enjoyment in Manatee, Sarasota, Charlotte and Lee Counties.
