The North Florida Land Trust was established in 1999 to preserve natural areas in North Florida permanently. Led by 2011 Board of Directors President Michael Langton, Langton Associates, the community-based organization operates as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit and serves seven counties - Nassau, Baker, Duval, Clay, St. Johns, Putnam, and Flagler - working with landowners, local government, and other environmental organizations to purchase environmentally sensitive properties. Thousands of acres of natural habitat in North Florida are lost to development each year. Since its inception, NFLT has been instrumental in preserving over 1100 acres of natural lands in the region. The organization relies on fundraisers and the contributions of supporters to acquire preservation lands. NFLT is a member of the national Land Trust Alliance.
