OSPREY, FL (October 27, 2022) Conservation Foundation of the Gulf Coast is pleased to announce a new landowner resources program designed to connect owners and managers of local ranches, farms, forests, and fields, with the resources they need when they need them. The program was tailored to meet the unique needs of landowners based on responses to a recent Conservation Foundation survey. As a not-for-profit land trust, the Foundation serves the community in many ways, including supporting private landowners in their efforts to meet long-term land management goals.
“Landowners and land managers in Southwest Florida face many challenges,” says Lee Amos, land stewardship manager at Conservation Foundation. “We may not have all the answers, but we want to be an active part of the solution. Our new landowner resources program is a space to bring people together and connect them with the tools they need to tackle their challenges and protect our beautiful home.”
The program consists of helpful documents and videos on a designated landowner resources page of Conservation Foundation’s website. There is also the option to receive a quarterly email newsletter with content specifically for Southwest Florida landowners, including stewardship and management information, upcoming landowner events, funding opportunities, and more. Those interested in getting in touch with a member of Conservation Foundation’s land protection team can do so quickly and conveniently using the Let’s Talk About Conservation form on their website.
Conservation Foundation is also excited to announce their first landowner community event, Conserving Family Lands: An Evening at Longino Ranch, scheduled for Friday, December 2 at 3:00 pm. During this special event, landowners and managers will hear from experienced local cattlemen and conservation professionals sharing personal stories of community, family, and business, including how land conservation has laid the groundwork for the future.
