Gary Cooper Florida, General

SEBRING, Fla. (Jan. 27, 2009) – Heartland Real Estate Corporation owner/broker James M. Wohl will speak at the National Association of Conservation Districts (NACD) Annual Meeting in New Orleans, LA on Feb. 3. Wohl, a supervisor for the Highlands Soil and Water Conservation District (HSWCD), will serve on a panel addressing the topic “Creating Opportunities in Challenging Times.” With local, state and federal governments looking to cut costs, some conservation districts, including HSWCD, and state associations continue to find new opportunities. Panelists will discuss strategically developed initiatives and partnerships that demonstrate relevance to their funders and provide new and existing services.

“I am honored to be chosen to represent Florida at the NACD meeting,” Wohl said. “In facing tough economic times, it is more important than ever to find creative ways and develop strategic partnerships to ensure conservation measures are in place, and I am looking forward to participating in a national forum to address this issue.”

Wohl, a long-time conservationist and newest member to the HSWCD board, has been recognized on the local, state and national level for his environmental practices and his proactive environmental management of Rafter T Ranch, a 5,200-acre cattle ranch in Sebring. HSWCD’s mission is to provide leadership to help people conserve, improve, and sustain the natural resources and environment of Highlands County.
