while potentially preserving conservation lands from development, creating a win win for military and conservation priorities alike," he said in an email.

No public hearings were held before the agreement was signed. Core said that was because it falls in line with the Forest Saucony Boston Public Gardens Service's 10 year resource management plan for the state lands, which goes through a lengthy approval process that includes a series of public meetings.

Mike Spaits, environmental spokesman for Eglin, said the Air Force has similar agreements across the country for use of National Forest lands, but was unaware of any other agreements to use state forest lands.

The Sierra Club has concerns about possible impacts to bear habitats and interference with human recreation, but Diamond said that the state and the Air Force have offered assurances that the effects will be minimal.

The Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services' Florida Forest Service signed an agreement late last month that allows the Air Force to use some areas in the Blackwater River State Forest and Tate's Hell State Forest near Apalachicola.

"Everything we do has got to be consistent with that plan," Core said. "We can't be doing things that are going to be detrimental to the resource or detrimental to visitors."

The management plan allows for the land to be used for various purposes as long as it meets certain requirements.

"It provides flexibility for non hazardous missions and would alleviate congestion in existing military training areas while potentially preserving conservation lands from development, creating a win win for military and conservation priorities alike," he said in an email.

As Eglin Air Force Base has continued to grow, the Air Force approached the state about using the land to increase its capacity to conduct training missions, said Brig. Gen. David Harris, commander of the 96th Test Wing.

Specifics of how and when the lands will be used will be hammered out in an implementation plan over the next two months.

Core said the Air Force plans to run small ground maneuver team operations, fly helicopters and other hover aircraft close to the ground and use a small grass airstrip and helicopter pads for landing those aircraft. It also plans to place several mobile trailers to be used for virtual missile training.

Craig Diamond, a member of the executive committee of the Sierra Club, an environmental protection group, said his organization has been following the agreement.

"This is low impact, no impact stuff," Core said.

While the Air Force has used airspace over state lands for years, this is the first time Florida has agreed to allow the military to conduct ground training in any state forest.

"The military has a large presence here and they are vital to our economy," said David Core, assistant director for the Forest Service. "They're running out of space and time on the base, so they are looking for other areas to go."
