Conservation 20/20 Land Management
The land management of all Conservation 20/20 properties is performed by a team of 22 dedicated employees under the Lee County Department of Parks and Recreation. Staff writes and implements land management plans, including GIS mapping, which outline the land management activities that each site will undergo in order to enhance natural plant communities and wildlife habitat. Land management activities include many types of restoration projects such as exotic plant and animal control, hydrologic restorations, prescribed fire and plantings. Management staff also designs and maintains all of the park-like amenities, such as boardwalks, restrooms, picnic pavilions, parking areas at our larger public use preserves, primitive trails at our preserves with walk-through gates, and our many miles of disked fire lines.
