NFLT ended the year with a series of acquisitions throughout North Florida and with the announcement of more than $3.5 million in funding from the Regional Conservation Partnership Program.

In addition to the rundown of the accomplishments of 2017 and goals for 2018, NFLT will also be presenting their annual awards to major donors, volunteers and outgoing board members.
