We use resource monitoring to ensure that the natural lands of Seminole County are being managed efficiently and effectively. Staff organize bioblitzes twice a year for rotating properties, where we identify as many species as possible with the help of experts, both volunteers and professional. We also conduct gopher tortoise burrow surveys to monitor populations, which has allowed us to receive grant funding for restoration projects on many of our properties.
In the fiscal year 2020-21, we organized two bioblitzes at Geneva Wilderness Area and Spring Hammock Preserve. We identified 236 previously unrecorded species at Geneva WA, and 335 species at Spring Hammock.
