We Need Your Help

Our group has undertaken the mission to SAVE FROM DEVELOPMENT and to preserve a beautiful, natural, untouched 14 acres of land in Tarpon Springs that is teeming with native animals and plant life, including some endangered species. These 14 acres are adjacent to the 76-acre Mariner’s Point Management Area (MPMA), an environmental preservation area owned by Pinellas County.

We intend to purchase these 14 acres and donate it to Pinellas County to be attached to the Mariner’s Point Management Area.

On Monday, March 14, the Florida Legislature approved a budget proposal for signature by Gov. Ron DeSantis that includes an appropriation to pay for the West Klosterman Preserve.  

The effort started with Rep. Chris Latvala’s introduction of the appropriation in January. With its approval, and the governor’s signature, Pinellas County, the Pinellas County School District, and WK Preservation Group will have what it takes to save the West Klosterman Preserve!   

Sincere thanks to Rep. Latvala, and Florida House Speaker Chris Sprowls for their commitment to conservation in Pinellas County. And sincere appreciation to all of you whose support made the difference that motivated our legislators to approve this appropriation. It is now in Gov. DeSantis’s hands.

The Work is NOT Done

Governor DeSantis does have line-item veto authority that could adversely impact the West Klosterman Preserve appropriation.  But a veto is not expected.  We will likely know the final result in early June.  Definitely a cliff-hanger. 

In the meantime, we continue to move forward on fundraising for preservation.  In addition to seeing the Save the West Klosterman Preserve campaign to its completion, with your help, we are also committed to preserving other wilderness parcels in Pinellas County and beyond and are planning some fun fundraising events in the near future. Stay tuned for details.
