The Office Of Environmental Services has received the following land management plans for properties 160 acres and smaller in size. Acquisition and Restoration Council (ARC) members who wish to have any of these plans placed on a formal ARC agenda for discussion should contact Hank Vinson, ARC Staff Director, prior to the date indicated below. Please note that at least three ARC members must make the request for a plan for a property smaller than 160 acres in size to be scheduled for an ARC agenda. If we do not receive three requests by the stated deadline to schedule a plan for consideration at an ARC meeting, the plan will be approved.

Natural Bridge Battlefield Historic State Park

Division of Recreation and Parks (DRP), Lease No. 3635

Natural Bridge Battlefield Historic State Park is located in unincorporated Leon County, approximately 15 miles southeast of Tallahassee. Access to the park is from Natural Bridge Road off State Road 363 near the community of Woodville. In addition, significant land and water resources existing near the park have been identified.

Currently, Natural Bridge Battlefield Historic State Park contains 135.20 acres. The State of Florida acquired the original 6 acres of Natural Bridge Battlefield Historic State Park as a donation from the United Daughters of the Confederacy for the purpose of the erection of a monument and establishing a park on the battlefield of the Battle of Natural Bridge. Land acquisition by the State of Florida continues through the present day, where the park boundary now extends to over 135 acres. The purpose of the acquisition is to protect the unique geological features of the St. Marks River, preserve the site of the historic civil war battle, protect the sites of prehistoric inhabitation, and provide the people of Florida with the opportunity to learn about this unique part of the state.

The link below contains the plan and associated maps. The plan will be approved by the Division of State Lands unless three ARC members request that it be placed on an agenda for consideration at a future Council meeting. The deadline for requesting that it be considered by ARC is February 11, 2016.
