In 2012, Donna and I purchased ~150 acres of land in the Florida Big Bend region ESE of Tallahassee. To some people this land may not hold much value. To us, however, it's paradise! The property consists of a huge freshwater wetland, mixed hardwood forests, tupelo gum and cypress dominated swamps, and scrub oak forests. Live oaks are abundant. Trails run through the property. Wildlife is abundant!
Our dream was to put the property in a conservation easement similar to what we've done with our Ohio property known as Edge of the Farm Conservation Area--(easement with the excellent Three Valley Conservation Trust). We placed our Florida conservation easement with the outstanding Tall Timbers Research Station and Land Conservancy. The property, known as Big Bend Wildlands Preserve, with the exception of a small homesite, will forever be protected from development.
Our vision is to conserve biodiversity and to educate and share with others some of the wonders of the world around us.
