Abstract

Joe Guidry speaks with Joel E. Jackson of the Environmental Lands Acquisition and Protection Program [ELAPP]. In the interview, Jackson recalls his early life in Seminole Heights, Florida, and the great impact of natural areas such as Lowry Park and Hillsborough State Park. Jackson recounts his entrance into the Metropolitan Development Agency, and the various projects that would soon shape the Conservation of Recreational Lands Program. Jackson describes the creation and evolution of the ELAPP project from the inspirations of the Conservation of Recreational Lands Program, and the many organizations that supported ELAPP - including the University of South Florida, the Audubon Society, and the Sierra Club. Jackson concludes the interview stating what he considers the most important achievements of ELAPP: not only the preservation of irreplaceable natural habitat, but the increase in the quality of life and health associated with unspoiled natural areas, for both wildlife and people.
