Since our first printing of the Florida Ranches Calendar in 2006, we’ve used it as a teaching tool to tell the story of Florida’s cattle ranches. The captivating photographs showcase a diversity of ranches from around the state and highlight the critical role they play in preserving Florida’s environmental, agricultural and cultural heritage.
In April 2021, something remarkable happened! Florida lawmakers passed the Florida Wildlife Corridor Act with bipartisan unanimous support, allocating $300 million towards efforts to preserve notable lands and waters within a statewide ecological corridor that has been created over the last decade. It will require people and partnerships at every level to successfully connect Florida’s largest existing conservation lands into a viable network.
The 2022 Ranches Calendar is a perfect opportunity to showcase ranches located within the Florida Wildlife Corridor – those who are already under conservation easements and those yet to be protected.
Your support of the 2022 Florida Ranches Calendar helps us educate the public and lawmakers to keep these important conservation initiatives top of mind. The Calendar is a year-long reminder that ranchers are the oldest environmental stewards in our state and their lands are a critical part of the green infrastructure that is the foundation of Florida’s economy and quality of life.
Please consider sponsoring our 2022 Ranches Calendar so we can continue sharing their stories.
