Black Lake PreserveThe Alachua County Office of Land Conservation and Management (Alachua County Forever Program) will host a public meeting on Tuesday, August 16, 2022. The meeting is to discuss the proposed Management Plan and Master Recreation for Black Lake Preserve, located west of Melrose. The meeting is from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Trinity Episcopal Church (204 S.R. 26, Melrose).
