On May 8, the Board of County Commissioners voted to acquire the property for creation of the Preserve!
The real estate closing was finalized on May 22.
Thanks to the generosity of the Floyd C. Johnson and Flo Singer Johnson Foundation and many other contributors, sufficient funds were raised to convince the County Commissioner to purchase the land.
However, more funding is needed and we are still seeking donations.

We owe an enormous debt of gratitude to the Conservation Foundation of the Gulf Coast for negotiating the purchase of the property, publicizing the need to preserve this site, and obtaining pledges and donations toward the acquisition.
