Local People…Saving Local Lands

 The Bay County Conservancy (BCC) is a land trust dedicated to the preservation of environmentally sensitive lands in Northwest Florida. BCC is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization and a member of the national Land Trust Alliance. Our goal is to acquire land that will enhance the present and future natural resources of this area. With our rapid growth rate, these lands and natural resources are under constant pressure and threat of development.

Environmentally important land areas, such as endangered wetlands, will be purchased or accepted as tax-exempt donations. Land can also be preserved through conservation easements. An easement is a contract between a landowner and the Bay County Conservancy that protects certain natural resources of the land while leaving the landowner in possession and with some use of the land.

Audubon Nature Preserve

Such land areas provide many benefits:

wildlife habitat

stormwater retention

aquifer recharge

air cleansing

recreation and education

green space for human renewal
