The Celery Fields Quad Parcels

Just the Facts

  • 33 acres adjoining the Celery Fields at the intersection of Palmer Blvd and Apex Road in Sarasota
  • Sarasota County is placing a perpetual conservation easement on the northeast, southeast, and southwest Quad parcels
  • Conservation Foundation is working with the Sarasota Audubon and Sarasota County to conserve and re-vegetate the southeastern quad parcel.

 

Why it Matters

 

The property is an important community asset and permanent protection and restoration will provide a woodland attracting a broader diversity of birds as well as more public access including an ADA-accessible trail. These parcels are adjacent to the Celery Fields, an internationally acclaimed birding site and tributary to Phillippi Creek and Little Sarasota Bay.
