Pasco preserves

If the Penny for Pasco sales tax is extended, a portion would be used to buy environmentally sensitive lands. Unlike buying a sheriff's cruiser or doing a road improvement, that project is a little more ambiguous. So, we walk through the reason why Pasco is setting up a land-buying program and why it says it needs the money from the Penny. We visit the Jumping Gully Preserve and the Pithlachascotee River Preserve in Spring Hill, to look at an example of the program in action. The Jumping Gully Preserve is a specific example of how the county is trying to restore a former cattle ranch to its natural habitat.
