Florida Department of Environmental Protection Secretary Noah Valenstein, among several other environmental leaders across Florida, highlighted through a recent visit the state’s efforts to conserve and protect its natural resources through supporting the Red Hills Conservation Florida Forever Project, located in the Red Hills region of North Tallahassee. The project was approved for purchase through Florida Forever, the state’s premier conservation and recreation lands acquisition program. This is one of the state’s largest endeavors to preserve and protect longleaf pine ecosystems through coordinated conservation efforts.
“Land conservation has a far-reaching impact on virtually every component of our environment and communities,” says Valenstein. “It is a critical component in our collaborative efforts to ensure our natural resources are protected and remain healthy for generations to come. This property is a great example of the continued coordination among environmental stakeholders that has strengthened our ability to safeguard our state’s conservation lands.”
