North Florida Land Trust (NFLT) was founded in 1999 and is a local land conservation 501(c)3 organization committed to protecting and preserving the natural landscape and ecosystems. Throughout NFLT’s 25-year history, it has remained focused on preserving the most ecologically, agriculturally, and historically significant lands in North Florida.

NFLT President and CEO, Allison DeFoor, recently explained to Southeast AgNet’s Randall Weiseman what they are all about.

NFLT’s core service area is seven counties: Nassau, Duval, Clay, St. Johns, Putnam, Baker, and Flagler. Within this area and the O2O (Osceola to Ocala Corridor), NFLT has conserved more than 38,300 acres including coastal salt marshes, pine forests, cypress swamps, and beaches, all of which play an integral role in the region’s remarkable array of ecosystems.  But as DeFoor mentioned, they are expanding.
