Project Posters

Since its inception in 2004, Florida's Wildlife Legacy Initiative has worked with more than 100 partners to create approximately 150 projects supported by Florida's State Wildlife Grant program. Posters have been developed for many of these projects, and are displayed below by goal category. The full-sized posters have been displayed at many events of Florida's Wildlife Legacy Initiative as well as partner events. These attractive posters provide brief summaries of the project purpose, objectives, approach and benefits. Participation in the poster projects was optional; therefore not all State Wildlife Grant projects are represented here. Posters may be viewed/downloaded at full size or at letter size (for printing or viewing on-screen).

***Documents are in PDF format Adobe PDF. You will need the FREE Adobe Reader to see them. Viewers can also convert the pdf document to html through Adobe.***
