The Florida Forest Service Will Hold Three Forest Legacy Program Workshops for Citizens and Stakeholders in August
Tallahassee, FL
 The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services Florida
Forest Service is updating portions
of the state’s Forest
Action Plan related to the USDA Forest Legacy Program and is inviting citizens and stakeholders to get involved. The Florida

“The protection and conservation of forests in Florida is vital,”
said Jim Karels, State Forester.
forests provide countless benefits including forest products, job opportunities,
recreational opportunities, and the protection of water quality and wildlife habitat.”
 Currently, the Florida Forest Service is partnering with
Florida State University’s Flor 
ida  Natural Areas Inventory (FNAI) to update and identify priority forestlands that qualify as Forest Legacy areas eligible for federal funding from the Forest Legacy Program. In an effort to secure broad support for the Forest Legacy Program in Florida and to seek further input from citizens and stakeholders on potential criteria and focus areas, the Florida Forest Service and FNAI will hold three Public Participation Workshops around the state. Below are the Forest Legacy workshop details:
