Description of Program The goal of the Florida Plant Conservation Program is to restore and maintain existing populations of listed plants on public lands and on private lands managed for conservation purposes. Previous or ongoing projects address demography, monitoring, reintroduction, germination, pollination and other aspects of population ecology. This program also funds invasive, exotic plant removal projects aimed at enhancing habitat where federal-listed plants are known to exist.
When are landowner applications accepted? All proposals submitted to the Program should deal directly with the recovery of federally-listed plant species in Florida and should relate to the species' Recovery Plan or should explain why a non-listed species should be considered for funding. The proposal format is included in the website for anyone interested in submitting a proposal but it must be submitted by the last Friday in January.
