Bluefield Ranch Mitigation Bank

Designed, restored and managed at an ecosystem or landscape level, BRMB has become one of Florida’s most ecologically-diverse banks, with a 2,695-acre ecosystem featuring 20 native plant communities (2,545-acres of 14 wetland types and 150 acres of 6 upland types).  Sitting astride a “South Florida continental divide”, approximately 60% of the bank is part of the Greater Everglades Ecosystem/Watershed and the rest of the bank is part of the St. Lucie River-Eastern Flatwoods/Indian River Lagoon Ecosystem/Watershed. BRMB’s Perpetual Adaptive Management Program, executed entirely in-house, features an industry-leading Fire Ecology Plan which insures that all of the bank’s acreage experiences the numerous optimal benefits of prescribed burning while the Program’s Exotic Plant and Animal Control Plan, Climate Change Adaptive Response Plan, Listed Species Management Plan and Native Wildlife Comprehensive Plan insures that all of the bank’s ecosystem services and structures continue to prosper in perpetuity. Also, BRMB is also home to one of the State’s most important Seminole Wars Historic Sites – Fort Van Swearingen - which is protected by the Bank’s Historic Preservation Plan.

Providing an abundant quantity of state and federal credits, along with listed species mitigation (Wood Stork, Caracara and other species on a case-by-case basis) for development impacts in St. Lucie, Martin, Okeechobee and Indian River Counties.
