Scrub Jay Groups and Habitats
Mitigation is different per county. There’s only a few counties in Florida, such as Charlotte County, that have a streamline process in place for mitigation of Scrub Jay Groups and Habitats. While a simple assessment by an environmental consultant could cost as little as $500 to determine that a formal survey is not required, permitting occupied scrub jay habitat can take years and cost $20,000 – $70,000 per acre of area impacted.
