Background Discussion

Manatee County Parks and Natural Resources was awarded a $30,000 Coastal Partnership Initiative grant for habitat management and user improvements at Perico Preserve.  These funds are administered through the Florida Department of Environmental Protection pursuant to the Coastal Zone Management Act (§380.22, F.S.).  Funds will be used for supplemental exotic species treatments to enhance the quality of habitats undergoing restoration and provide user improvements such as a bird blind or interpretive signage.  The County Attorney’s Office has reviewed the Grant Agreement with the results of their review resulting in acknowledgment as acceptable by the Parks and Natural Resources Department.
