State to purchase sensitive land site

Published September 18, 2008 - Tallahassee Democrat
More than 1,000 acres along the St. Marks River in Leon County will be protected from development under a purchase approved Tuesday by the governor and Cabinet.

The area is north of Apalachee Parkway and features pine woods, river swamp and a stream that flows underground into Wood Sink. Tallahassee and Leon County earlier had targeted the area for purchase under the Blueprint 2000 program to protect water quality.
