Hillsborough County Florida Conservation and Environmental Lands Management Department
We manage more than 61,000 acres of environmentally sensitive wildlife habitat and corridors acquired through the Jan K. Platt Environmental Lands Acquisition and Protection Program (ELAPP).
Management responsibilities include:Prescribed burningInvasive species controlWildlife inventoryTrail maintenanceFeral animal controlHabitat improvements for endangered and threatened species of plants and animals
ELAPP is a voluntary program established for the purpose of providing the process and funding for identifying, acquiring, preserving and protecting endangered, environmentally-sensitive and significant lands in Hillsborough County. It is a citizen-based program with volunteer committees involved in every key aspect of the program. ELAPP is not a regulatory program, but lands are identified for the program because of their environmental significance.

The first ever Grind For Life skate contest held at a Hills-
borough County Skate Park was not only a huge success but a
memorable experience for the community. Last Saturday the
Brandon Skate Park hosted the final installment of the GFL
series and had over 80 contestants and 200 plus visitors for
the event. I want to personally thank several recreation em-
ployees who helped make this a smooth event: Carrie Albano-
notarized waivers, set-up/take down and supervised skaters.
Ross Caruso- set-up/take down and also came in the top ten
for the sponsored division street contest! Joey Pacheco
