I have a passion for nature and our land. While this post is sponsored by The Trust for Public Land, thoughts and feelings expressed below are all my own.
I moved to St. Petersburg, Florida a few years ago on a whim after falling in love with the city while helping a family member relocate and I absolutely love it here still. The beaches are obviously part of the reason I decided to live here; but I have to be honest, one of my absolute favorite things about this area is all the parks and nature preserves! In Pinellas County alone, we have over 20,000 acres of land dedicated to parks and preserves - a decent amount for the most densely populated county in Florida.
Despite all the land they've saved, the fact is, open space in America is disappearing at a rate of 6,000 acres a day! If we continue to allow our land to be destroyed, we aren't leaving much land for future generations to enjoy.
Something needs to change, we can't keep ignoring this problem. Together we all can reverse this decline – for the health of our families, our communities, and our future. It's our right to protect the beauty that our nation has to offer.
