On the Gulf Coast of Florida, water is a powerful force in our lives and it makes this region a cherished destination and home for many. The Conservation Foundation of the Gulf Coast is a private, nonprofit land trust working to save land that defines the character and ecology of our region. The Foundation strives to protect the natural integrity and biodiversity of the bays, beaches, barrier islands, and their watersheds for future generations.
