Landowners Meeting Specific to Preserve Addition
Contact: Christine Clark, 239-695-1153
In a continuing effort for open communication with landowners within the legislative boundaries of Big Cypress National Preserve, National Park Service staff will hold a meeting at the Big Cypress Sanctuary Airstrip (located in the Big Cypress Addition) on Monday evening, April 16th from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m.
There are over 200 privately held parcels within the Addition of the Preserve. We hope to offer presentations on several topics of interest specifically to those who own property within the Big Cypress Addition. A variety of topics related to Preserve management will be covered, including implementation of the Preserve's Addition General Management Plan, the Hunt Management Plan, and the ORV Management Plan. Other topics will include the access point at Mile Marker 51 on Interstate 75, and the qualification process for Addition Landowners.
Did You Know?
There are few "big cypress" in Big Cypress National Preserve. The name comes from the great expanse of cypress forest, hundreds of thousands of acres, within the Big Cypress Swamp.
