Today, FLERA is a diverse organization of state, county and municipal agencies and consulting firms. Our members provide a wide variety of environmental protection and land management services.

FLERA is a not-for-profit Florida corporation and is approved as an exempt organization under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
