Closing Gaps in the Florida Greenways and Trails System

The recent purchase of land to close gaps in the Florida Greenways and Trails System resulted from partnerships between state, regional and county governments to protect land for recreation and conservation in the Sunshine State.

"The Florida Department of Environmental Protection has approved six land purchases that will close key gaps in the Florida Greenways and Trails System, a statewide network of trails for recreation, conservation and alternative transportation," reports Christine Stapleton.

Stapleton's coverage focuses especially on the two purchases in Palm Beach County, which will close gaps in the 63-mile Ocean to Lake Trail connecting Hobe Sound Beach near Jupiter to Lake Okeechobee in Port Mayaca.
