Why We Save Land

 

10th Anniversary Palm Ball

Guests enjoyed a memorable evening celebrating a very special 10th Anniversary Palm Ball with our theme “A Land Remembered.” The philanthropic event welcomed guests from throughout the region who came to enjoy cocktails overlooking Little Sarasota Bay followed by a gourmet dinner and an evening of dancing.

Thank you to our sponsors, guests and donors whose support benefits Conservation Foundation of the Gulf Coast and its critical land protection initiatives. It's a tremendously exciting time as we stand on the cusp of adding 10,000 acres to the protected lands along our beautiful Gulf Coast. We celebrate our rapidly growing conservation community of supporters who, like you, cherish our special natural places.

Please join Conservation Foundation and invest in protecting and preserving the land of Florida's Gulf Coast for this generation and generations to come. Together, in this era of swiftly changing landscapes, we will have an impact that is profound and long lasting.

About Conservation Foundation

Conservation Foundation of the Gulf Coast works to protect the environmental character, biodiversity and natural integrity of the bays, beaches, barrier islands and their watersheds on Florida's Gulf Coast for future generations. Our work forever protects these critical and rapidly disappearing resources, ensuring a Florida where our children will want to live and visitors will continue to explore.

Yet, we know we cannot do this work alone. In our short thirteen-year history, our work with partners, landowners, and generous donors has saved nearly 9,725 acres across 34 properties. These special places include ecologically sensitive areas providing protection for rare habitat as well as significant natural places for the public to enjoy. Our impact is far reaching, affecting the health of the entire Gulf Coast.

Conservation Foundation is actively working on a bold, landscape-scale initiative, spanning three counties on Florida's Gulf Coast, to create a wilderness preserve rivaling our greatest national treasures. Called the Myakka Island Conservation Corridor, we are expanding protected lands on the Myakka River, which currently exceed 110,000 acres and 22 of our national parks. This nature preserve will become the heart of southwest Florida, benefitting people and wildlife by preventing flooding, protecting invaluable wildlife habitat, and keeping our waterways drinkable, fishable and swimmable.

Our wildlife and special places that have long inspired us to call this region home face greater challenges than ever. We recognize that we are the last generation that can save the precious areas which remain. Conservation Foundation will continue to broaden its impact for conservation and build a community of passionate supporters committed to protecting land for people and for nature. Please join us.
