DECEMBER 2022 – The Conservation Foundation of the Gulf Coast recently recognized Shareholder Alyssa Nohren for her work on two notable land projects.
Conservationists have acquired more land at the headwaters of the Myakka River to preserve areas of floodplain marsh and upland forest. The Conservation Foundation of the Gulf Coast purchased 69 acres that will increase the size of the Myakka Headwaters Preserve, where seven streams converge to form the Myakka River. The acquisition will allow full restoration and protection of the entire river floodplain in this area. The new property will also enable the execution of essential land management activities, including prescribed fire and exotic invasive plant removal throughout the landscape.
In a mailing to supporters and donors (pictured below), CFGC recognized Nohren “for her tireless effort to help us complete these two, very complex land projects pro bono.” Nohren has worked with the foundation for many years and was recognized in 2016 as their “Volunteer of the Year.”
