North Florida Land Trust

The North Florida Land Trust conserves scenic, natural, agricultural and open land for the future of Northeast Florida in seven counties by

• Developing long term land protection strategies,
• Promoting private and public funding for land conservation,
• Acquiring land and conservation easements,
• Stewardship including the restoration of conservation properties, and
• Promoting a sense of place and a land ethic through activities, education and outreach.

Our protected lands are located throughout northeast Florida. From historic meadows and tidal wetlands to leafy woodlands and inland wetlands, we are stewards of all North Florida's representative habitats. Some of these properties are small or need prior permission from our Executive Director to access them. We rely on visitors and neighbors to be our eyes and ears on Land Trust properties as well as to report bird and wildlife sightings. We want you to care for our properties as much as we do. Thousands of acres of land and natural habitat in North Florida are being lost every year to development. Only through conservation efforts at every level will we have success in retaining this area's natural beauty: clean water and air; a healthy ecosystem; and our quality of life.

NFLT relies on support from community members with a strong land conservation ethic to provide financial support that makes our work possible. NFLT is a regional land trust that spans seven counties: Baker, Clay, Duval, Flagler, Nassau, Putnam and St. Johns counties.
