Natural Resources

Polk County has a remarkable natural beauty that can't be found anywhere else in the state.

From its vivid wildlife in places like the Circle B Bar Reserve in Lakeland, to its delicate ecosystems on the Lake Wales Ridge, Polk's natural resources are an attraction to many.

But that natural beauty needs upkeep. Polk's Natural Resources Division develops and implements natural resource management programs that protect, enhance, and manage Polk's environment and public parks systems.

The division's programs include:

  • Invasive plant management
  • Environmental lands
  • Mosquito control
  • Water resources
  • Parks and recreation
