Florida Forever Nearing 1 Million Acres

In the fall quarter Gov. Jeb Bush and Florida lawmakers voted to purchase more than 197,000 acres at five different locations in the state for the Florida Forever program. The five new projects bring the total number of acres in the land preservation program to almost 1 million. The Florida Forever project is a $3 billion program designed to conserve environmentally sensitive land in the Sunshine State.
