Since when does a park have surplus land? Maybe we can sell it to Walmart or put up a Burger King. Here is what Tropical Audubon has to say about this important subject:
Please help us save 150 acres of conservation land at Oleta River State Park and several acres critical to wildlife in the Keys from being surplussed by the State!
As part of their Land Assessment, the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) has identified 2 parcels in Oleta River State Park amounting to 150 acres, as well as numerous parcels in the Keys, to be considered for surplus.
The parcels in Oleta River State Park, adjacent to the Biscayne Bay Aquatic Preserves, are mangrove wetlands, critical for waterbirds and fisheries.
Tropical Audubon Society believes the State should be working to acquire more land for conservation such as these, not surplussing them.
There will be two webinars hosted where engaged citizens like yourself will have the opportunity to voice their concerns. Please sign up and speak up for Oleta River State Park and the Keys.
