Florida State Parks

Florida’s public land management officials are expected to vote Friday morning on whether to approve a proposal that could lead to the expansion of military training exercises in state forests. But, some wonder what that could mean for the wildlife and recreational activities.

The Florida Department of Environmental Protection wants to focus on increasing water quality and upgrading state parks next year—if the Legislature grants a request for additional money.  The department also expects to sell $20 million worth of land as part of its 2014 spending plan.
