Florida Cabinet OK’s Big Bend preservation plan

by Margaret Willard

The Florida Cabinet blessed an environmental plan last week to preserve thousands of acres across the Big Bend.

The plan, OK’d unanimously, furthers conservation efforts in several counties – Wakulla, Leon, Jefferson as well as the St. Joseph Bay Aquatic Preserve. Its goal is to sustain public use and water quality, among other objectives.

The 222-page document features several easement and land acquisition plans. It also includes plans to manage more than two dozen historic sites and structures. Among them: the Black’s Island Lighthouse and Confederate Salt Works.

The Office of Resilience and Coastal Protection drafted up the sweeping proposal.
