Pensacola Bay Mitigation Bank

Pensacola Bay Mitigation Bank (Private) / Pensacola Bay Watershed / Santa Rosa County

The Pensacola Bay Mitigation Bank (PBMB), a privately owned and operated mitigation bank, is a viable compensatory mitigation alternative for wetland mitigation impacts to jurisdictional hardwood, pine flatwoods, and herbaceous wetlands.  The 1,205 acre site is located in Santa Rosa County and contiguous to the Florida Forever Acquisition Area called the Garcon Ecosystem Preserve.  The Garcon Peninsula contains some of the best pitcher plant prairies remaining in Florida and the Florida Forever Ecosystem project is charged with protecting and expanding these prairies.  The carnivorous white-topped pitcher plant, a state endangered plant species is  located and protected within the mitigation bank.  This project makes a significant contribution to the viability of the Garcon project by increasing the size of the preserve by approximately 15%.  The service area for the PBMB includes land in Escambia, Santa Rosa, and Okaloosa counties.  Additional information on this private mitigation bank is available at  [Text from Westervelt Ecological Services flyer]
