" The ASA is committed to acquisition of these vital lands for conservation and development into parks for education and enjoyment for all"
All too often, property containing vital natural resources falls into unsuspecting hands. The ASA is committed to acquisition of these vital lands for conservation and development into parks for education and enjoyment for all. Wakulla County consists of 735 square miles; of this, 606 miles is land and 73-percent of this land is federal and state park land. While this may present what appears to be ample park space for the community, much of this land is not accessible due to conesrvation efforts or lack of funding to render them safe.
The ASA is forming a partnership with the parks for stewardship programs to bring the lands to a standard for human enjoyment. The ASA will remain committed to bringing natrual land access for education and conservation as a top priority.
In late 2012, ASA was informed of a small tract of property which was subject to the threat of development. The property contains a natural set of natural sinks and an old spring run. ASA has been exploring the underground aquatic cave and has mapped over 3000’ of passage reaching depths of 245’. It has been discovered the cave is suffering from ground runoff intrusion which is creating significant loss of marine life within the system. ASA is currently raising the funds to acquire the property in order to establish a conservation easement which will protect the cave from future damage.
