National Association of Counties visiting Tall Timbers
Leadership committees of the National Association of Counties (NACo) will visit Tall Timbers on December 9. NACo was founded in 1935 to improve and unite America’s 3,069 county governments. More than 70 county commissioners from 25 states across the nation will tour Tall Timbers Research Station, hear presentations in the field on topics of national interest like wildfire mitigation and private land conservation, and enjoy lunch on the lawn of the Beadel House overlooking beautiful Lake Iamonia.
The President of the National Association of Counties Board of Directors is Leon County Commissioner Bryan Desloge. Tall Timbers is located in Commissioner Desloge’s district, and he has long been a friend and supporter of our organization.
NACo works to bring county officials together to advocate with a common voice on national policy, exchange ideas, and build new leadership skills for county commissioners nationwide. We are honored that Bryan asked Tall Timbers to host NACo on their visit to Tallahassee.
