Land protection programs
USF St. Petersburg has self-published a new book, The Rivers of The Green Swamp, and we talked to one of the writers and a professor involved with the project.
Our main guests were Andy Mcleod, director of External Affairs, TNC Florida Chapter, involved with the Florida Forever land acquisition program in Tallahassee; and William Lorenzen, with the Trust for Public Lands (www.tpl.org) office in St. Petersburg.
William talked about Hillsbrough County's Environmental Lands Acquisition and Protection Program (ELAPP) and other local land preservation programs. Also, Debbie Butts, a volunteer on the ELAPP General Committee talked a little about the upcoming Florida Native Plant Society conference.comments powered by Disqus
