Conservation Lands

The Florida Natural Areas Inventory is the central repository for information on Florida's conservation lands. The Inventory database includes boundaries and statistics for more than 2,500 federal, state, local, and private managed areas, all provided directly by the managing agencies. National parks, state forests, wildlife management areas, local and private preserves are examples of the managed areas included.

While we maintain ongoing data exchange with federal and state agencies and many local governments, we encourage local governments and private organizations to submit conservation lands information for our database. To submit information on managed areas, e-mail Nathan Pasco.
