2500 acres of riverine marshland added to Timucuan Ecological & Historic Pres
North Florida Land Trust announced Tuesday it has completed the sale of more than 2,500 acres of marshland along the Nassau River to the National Park Service.
This marshland is within the Timucuan Ecological and Historic Preserve boundary and will become part of the Preserve. NFLT bought the bulk of the land included in this purchase from the estate of Theodore Carey for $750,000 in 2015 with this sale ultimately in mind. The rest of the parcels purchased by NPS were donated to NFLT in 2013 by the family of Noble Enge Jr. NPS bought both properties for $750,000.
