Nature Preserve dedicated in Old Homosassa

Dedication of the Troy Sameuel Cumming Nature Preserve in Old Homosassa

In 1998, Homosassa resident Roger Adams bought a piece of property on West Yulee Drive from his long-time friend, Troy Samuel Cumming, with the promise of keeping the land pristine.

On Wednesday, after years of searching for the right people to donate the land to, Adams and his wife, Sally Smith Adams, officially donated the property to the Tampa Bay Conservancy.

The occasion was marked with the dedication of the property as the Troy Samuel Cumming Nature Preserve, and has the blessing of the Southwest Florida Water Management Water District (SWFWMD).
