Sarasota County, Florida


Project: Sarasota 2050 Conservation Planning
Client: Sarasota County, Florida
Principal Ecologist: Dr. Jay Exum led both the technical analysis and communications with environmental stakeholders for the Sarasota 2050 Conservation PlanFrequently our projects are a part of a larger-scale ecological context with a complex array of ecological issues. And more often than not, with these complexities come a variety of opinions on how to implement large-scale conservation plans involving multiple stakeholders, local governments and environmental interests. Engaging impassioned stakeholders on complicated projects affecting the natural environment is our specialty. We are inspired to lead and develop conservation plans that define future land use; prioritize land acquisition and conservation easements; and establish goals for public use and ecological restoration.
