The day Allen told his father about his concerns at the disappearance of Florida’s natural beauty was one of the last days they would be together. He reminded his father of the wonder he encountered in the, “Wild Lands,” and remarked that they were quickly disappearing all around the world. He suggested that somebody needed to do something before they disappeared from this earth forever. His father promised he would do what he could. Being a man of his word, Dr. Broussard set out to make a difference. He learned that the land surrounding his ranch was divided into hundreds of small plots, each only a few acres. Over the years we have acquired most of this land. We founded a nature park, to help fund the Allen Broussard Conservancy and to attract visitors. Our mission is to honor our son’s legacy of protecting and conserving wild Florida while educating visitors to the land and to this website about the importance of conservation and caring for our earth.
Today the Allen Broussard Conservancy lives on, continually acquiring more land to restore, conserve, and protect. The Conservancy continues its mission to protect wild, native Florida.
