Description

This data layer contains the site-based boundaries of all Florida Forever BOT projects approved by the State's Acquisition and Restoration Council. These lands have been proposed for acquisition because of outstanding natural resources, opportunity for natural resource-based recreation, or historical and archaeological resources. However, these areas may not be currently managed for their resource value. Portions of these projects may have already been acquired by the State and/or its acquisition partners.  Acquired parcels are incorporated into the Florida Natural Areas Inventory's Florida Managed Areas (FLMA) data layer, either as new managed areas (i.e., conservation lands) or additions to existing managed areas.
