#1. Artist in Residence – Conservation Foundation of the Gulf Coast

Driving down the road leading to Bay Preserve
where the Conservation Foundation of the
Gulf Coast is located.
Clyde has been honored by being invited to be
the first Artist in Resident by the Conservation
Foundation of the Gulf Coast at
the Bay Preserve. It is a great organization and
we’re looking forward
to spending two great weeks with them!
The Conservation Foundation of the Gulf
Coast is a private non-profit that works with
landowners, businesses, and government to protect
and preserve the beauty and natural integrity
of the bays, beaches, and barrier islands that
make the Gulf Coast special.
The Foundation purchases natural areas, holds
land preservation agreements, and educates for
responsible stewardship. The Foundation also
serves as the land acquisition agent for Sarasota
County’s acclaimed environmentally sensitive lands
program, their neighborhood parks program,
and is a partner in efforts to preserve Florida’s
natural heritage.
