Learn About Florida Consevation Group


Established in 2015, FCG was built upon the principle of incentive-driven land conservation. Our goal is to ensure that conservation is both science-based and economically viable and to keep Florida’s natural and agricultural lands intact.


FCG consists of scientists, ranchers and conservation and policy experts who educate, support, advise on, and facilitate conservation easements and other conservation incentive programs.
