Environmental Lands Management Division
The Environmental Lands Management Division manages environmentally sensitive wildlife habitat and corridors acquired through the Jan K. Platt Environmental Lands Acquisition and Protection Program (ELAPP). This program is publicly supported and has been approved by voters.

Since 1988, Hillsborough County has purchased more than 61,000 acres that are now in public ownership. Management responsibilities include prescribed burning, invasive species control, wildlife inventory, and habitat improvements for endangered and threatened species of plants and animals.

This section also provides administrative operations and guides the land acquisition process which includes site assessments and rankings of publicly nominated sites.
