Supporting Public Acquisition for Conservation

A voice for nature on the Nature Coast.

The GCC is a not-for-profit local land trust which promotes natural resource preservation through public education and acquisition of sensitive areas by public agencies.

Founded in 1992 by residents of the Gulf coastal counties of Hernando and Pasco in west central Florida, their unifying concern was the increasing destruction of Florida's natural environment due to the dramatic rate of growth and development.

Working in partnership with government, business, and private interests, the GCC strives to preserve habitat which is crucial to the survival of native plant and animal species.

The GCC coordinates efforts to secure funding from public agencies and private sources, which are used to purchase tracts of land where the fragile natural ecosystems remain essentially intact.

The GCC asks its members to renew NOW if you haven't already. We have switched to a calendar year membership to make it easier for all. This is the time to sign up for 2014.
