Resource Stewardship

Volusia ECHO

The Volusia ECHO program, generated by a grass roots initiative, resulted from a citizen approved referendum passed November 7, 2000.  Volusia ECHO provides grant funds to finance acquisition, restoration, construction or improvement of facilities to be used for environmental, cultural, historical and outdoor recreational purposes. For 20 years, ECHO helped Volusia County construct important cultural and outdoor recreational facilities, save endangered historic buildings and provide environmental education projects.On November 3, 2020, 72% of Volusia County voters cast their ballot to continue the program for an additional 20 years.

Volusia Forever

From our Coastal shorelines to rivers, lakes, springs and lagoon, Volusia County is home to unique and diverse habitats where native plants and wildlife find refuge, and where people enjoy the beauty of nature. In 2000, Volusia County voters overwhelmingly approved the Volusia Forever initiative which is now an award-winning program that protects our special places.

UF/IFAS Extension Volusia County

From energy conservation to raising better tomatoes and helping youngsters develop self-esteem, the University of Florida/ Volusia County Extension offers a wealth of practical information for today’s families. The Extension Service can provide assistance with such community issues as water conservation, environmental protection, family health and nutrition, youth development and economic stability for Volusia's commercial agricultural enterprises.

Land Management

The Land Management activity is responsible for the management, enhancement and restoration of approximately 38,000 acres in Volusia County. Much of the acreage has been acquired through two Volusia County voter approved acquisition programs. The 1986 Endangered Lands program was involved in the purchase of more than 17,000 acres of important conservation lands.
