OSPREY, FL (March 14, 2023) Conservation Foundation of the Gulf Coast is excited to team up with Outdoors by Owner (OBO) to connect more people to the great outdoors and protect more special places in the process. A not-for-profit land trust, Conservation Foundation has been saving land in Southwest Florida since 2003. To date, they have permanently protected over 19,200 acres across 56 properties in the five counties they serve. Notable recent conservation successes include the 8-acre Don Pedro Island State Park Addition in Charlotte County, 20 acres of Florida Panther habitat in Collier County, the 191-acre Crowley Museum & Nature Center in Sarasota County, the 432-acre Myakka Headwaters Preserve in Myakka City, the 228-acre addition to Old Miakka Preserve in Sarasota County, and the centrally located almost 300-acre Bobby Jones Golf Club in the City of Sarasota.
The critical lands Conservation Foundation protects help capture pollution, provide vital habitats for plants and animals, act as natural buffers along coasts and riverbeds, and prevent flooding by holding rainfall from intense storms. Their work also increases people’s access to nature and with it all the benefits of healthy lands, such as clean water, fresh air, nutritious food, and improved mental and physical health.
“Connecting our community to nature and facilitating a deeper understanding of our delicate relationship with the natural world is a central component of Conservation Foundation’s work,” says Christine P. Johnson, president of Conservation Foundation. “We are delighted to partner with Outdoors by Owner to help even more people do just that and we thank OBO for their support.”
