  • Resource Management

    In the central Florida region, the aquatic preserve staff is responsible for resource management activities on more than 6,000 acres of sovereign submerged lands. The team coordinates interagency activities such as working group meetings, litter removal and project review. The team evaluates projects that may impact the aquatic preserve, fosters stakeholder participation in protecting the preserve with special projects like the Wekiva Promise program and provides community assistance with exotic plant control. Team members also serve in an advisory capacity on numerous technical committees that seek to resolve resource management issues.
