The Northwest District of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) is hosting a free master deadhead logging certification class. This certification class is a requirement before participants can apply for the necessary environmental resource permits for these activities.
Florida Ecological Restoration Inventory (FERI) was funded by a grant from 2001-2003. The inventory is no longer maintained by the department, and any information previously contained within is outdated.
The Environmental Resource Permitting (ERP) program regulates almost all changes to the landscape that affect surface water flows. Changes to the landscape include clearing, grading, construction of structures, filling, and dredging, whether the work occurs in uplands, wetlands, or other surface waters (including wetlands and waters that are isolated).
The Florida Department of Environmental Protection is the state’s lead agency for environmental management and stewardship – protecting our air, water and land. The vision of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection is to create strong community partnerships, safeguard Florida’s natural resources and enhance its ecosystems.
