North Florida Land Trust
The North Florida Land Trust is launching an ambitious project to conserve more land in North Florida.
The nonprofit is planning to create a 112,000 acre "Preservation Portfolio" of land they say is in critical need of preservation. This includes territory in Baker, Clay, Duval, Flagler, Putnam, and St. Johns Counties.
The estimated cost of purchasing the acreage is $216 million.
Jim McCarthy, executive director of the North Florida Land Trust, joins us to discuss the project and how they are raising funds for it.
