Our Mission

Putnam Land Conservancy (PLC) is a regional, nonprofit Florida land trust dedicated to working cooperatively with landowners and public and private conservation partners to preserve and protect important natural areas and open spaces– including wetlands and waters, forests and farmlands, and environmentally significant habitats–for this and future generations. PLC focuses on Putnam County, but our range of activity comprises several counties in Northeast Florida.

PLC secures land through gifts and bequests, land donation, direct purchase, and conservation easements. By these means we aim to enable landowners to safeguard in perpetuity the places that define the special character of our region.

PLC also promotes stewardship of land, through action and education, both for restoration and the maintenance of ecosystem integrity.
