Minter Creek Phase 1

Category Overview

Conserving land along our waterways protects important habitat and helps keep our rivers healthy, clean, and more resilient to drought. Riparian Protection projects conserve and restore fresh and saltwater habitat while protecting fish habitat. In doing so, the grants help provide our families, farms, and fisheries with clean water across the state.

Project Highlights

This project acquired 5 acres on Minter Creek on the Key Peninsula. This acquisition preserved the estuarine, riparian and upland habitat surrounding Minter Creek and prevented habitat degradation from development. This acquistion also allowed for greater public access to the water.
