What We Do

The Conservation Trust for Florida, Inc. is a non-profit land trust that was founded in 1999 by a group of professional conservationists to address the need to protect rural land and natural areas in Florida. To date, the CTF has helped to preserve over 10,000 acres of special Florida lands.

CTF works with landowners to find the best land conservation solution to meet their long-term financial and land management needs. Options include conservation easements, purchase or donation of land, carbon credits, and assistance with landowner succession and estate planning.

Protecting farms for future generations. Florida has a rich agricultural tradition. The ideal climate makes Florida the leader in many food and fiber crops, but this tradition is changing as the majority of farmers are over 55 years old. Within the next two decades, close to one-half of Florida’s agricultural lands will change hands. The work of land trusts will help protect these working rural landscapes for future generations.
