Orange County Mayor Jerry L. Demings and District 4 Commissioner Maribel Gomez Cordero to Open Crosby Island Marsh Preserve

WHAT: Orange County Environmental Protection Division will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony to open the Crosby Island Marsh Preserve to the public.

Bordering one-side of beautiful Lake Mary Jane, the Crosby Island Marsh Preserve was purchased through Orange County’s Green PLACE Program. The parcel is 243 acres that includes pine flatwoods, freshwater marshes and oak hammocks. Acquisition of this parcel made it possible to contribute land to a 3,000+-acre wildlife corridor, which connects other conservation and park lands in East Orange County.
