Highlands Ranch Mitigation Bank provides a reliable solution for those seeking compensatory mitigation for wetland impacts in the Northern St Johns River and Northern Coastal Basin 4. Our bank meets the standards for state and federal freshwater forested UMAM credits, permitted by both the St. Johns River Water Management District and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Spanning an impressive 1,576 acres in Clay County, our bank is a prime example of pine plantation restoration into mesic flatwoods and sandhill communities. It also boasts both isolated and contiguous wetlands of enhanced mixed forested wetland and bay swamp within the Ocala to Osceola Greenway, promoting environmental sustainability.
The Highlands Ranch Mitigation Bank is also home to a substantial upland habitat that serves as a Gopher Tortoise recipient site.
