Indian River Lagoon Counties identify lands for purchase based on their conservation value with consideration to allowing for public access and recreational use and enjoyment. In episode 6 of our podcast, we talk with Beth Powell (Director of IRL County Parks), Amy Griffin (Environmental Resources Director of St. Lucie County), and Mike Knight (Program Manager at Brevard County Environmentally Endangered Lands Program) about how lands are identified for purchase and what the criteria are, how public recreation factors into decision-making, particular projects’ successes, and each of the managers’ favorite projects in their respective counties.
