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.
