By saving land forever, we protect wild places for kids and grown-ups, for wildlife and waterways. And we can't do it without you. Together, we protect those places that make a difference in our lives – giving us clean water to drink, protected habitat for plants and animals, beautiful natural places to enjoy, great spots to hike and fish, a world class shoreline, and a reason to live, work and play here on Florida’s Gulf Coast.
We listened to you. You value protecting our cultural identity and way of life and focusing on land conservation that meets four priorities – conserving habitat, protecting shoreline and water access, connecting lands, and providing recreational access. We partner with willing landowners, donors and local governments to get the job done now, as time is running out.
People care about saving the lands they love, forever.
There are a variety of ways to grow your love of nature. Enjoying an outdoor picnic under the oaks, playing an outdoor nature game or exploring shoreline habitats by kayak are a few. Check out our programs and events - we have more than a dozen free programs each year. We are also your regional voice for conservation, and help our state and local decision-makers stay informed on the issues and strategies that shape smart conservation decisions.
We collaborate with other organizations in many ways - to offer programs for you, to study and care for the land, and to share knowledge and figure out the best path to save critical natural lands, forever.
