Hi Folks and welcome to the Peninsular Florida Landscape Conservation Cooperative network site. As the newly appointed PFLCC coordinator, I welcome you to the site either as a first time visitor or as a returning member. This site is a venue in which we hope to provide a forum for communication as well as a mechanism for feedback and links to new information. Please consider joining this site and establishing personal settings that will alert you through email when new content is posted
I am eagerly looking forward with meeting you and the rest of the conservation community in Florida as we work to develop the PFLCC into a self-directed partnership. Furthermore, I am very excited about the prospects for a highly successful LCC in Florida. We already have a number of highly effective partnerships and collaborative efforts in place that can serve a foundation for moving the LCC from a concept to a reality.
