Mangrove Point Mitigation Bank is 314 acres of protected lands located in Hillsborough County, FL within the Tampa Bay & Coastal Areas Drainage Basin (SWFWMD) with Saltwater Mangrove/Estuarine Forested, Estuarine Emergent And Palustrine Emergent Credits Available.
Mangrove Point Mitigation Bank is located directly on Tampa Bay. Large areas of rare and sensitive salt tern habitat were destroyed by dredging done in the 1950s to control mosquitoes. The mitigation bank is in the process of restoring this rare and sensitive habitat to help increase habitat for the Reddish Egret and other endemic species.
Mangrove Point Mitigation Bank is owned and managed by Southern States Land & Timber, LLC which was founded in 1877. The company has prospered throughout the years as a land acquisition and holding company with property interests in Louisiana, Texas & Florida.
