The nonprofit North Florida Land Trust announced Friday it reached an agreement to buy Fish Island, a 57-acre property on the Intracoastal Waterway adjacent to the Florida 312 bridge on Anastasia Island.

“The governor and the Cabinet will have final approval of the purchase with Florida Forever funds and while we don’t normally announce our deals until they close, we did want to let the community know that we had come to an agreement to preserve the land,” said Jim McCarthy, president of the land trust in a news release.

  The North Florida Land Trust supports environmental protection in the region.
