The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services Florida Forest Service is updating portions of the state's Forest Action Plan related to the USDA Forest Legacy Program and is inviting citizens and stakeholders to get involved. The Florida Forest Service's participation in the Forest Legacy Program compliments its Rural and Family Lands Protection Program by helping to protect and conserve important forest areas through voluntary conservation easements and fee simple purchases.
In an effort to secure broad support for the Forest Legacy Program in Florida and to seek further input from citizens and stakeholders on potential criteria and focus areas, the Florida Forest Service and Florida State University's Florida Natural Areas Inventory will hold three Public Participation Workshops around the state.
Landowner participation in the program, including the sale of lands and interests in lands, is entirely voluntary. For more information about the Florida Forest Legacy Program, visit the website or call the Forest Legacy Program Coordinator at (850) 681-5816.
