Since 2003, the Conservation Collier Program has been acquiring properties of high natural resource value throughout Collier County from willing sellers. Properties acquired met specific criteria including: rare habitat, aquifer recharge, flood control, water quality protection, and listed species habitat.
At the program's inception, the Collier County Board of County Commissioners (Board) appointed a Land Acquisition Advisory Committee (Committee) to consider and make recommendations on offered properties. The Committee's recommendations have resulted in Board approval for and acquisition of 4,060 acres in 19 project locations throughout Collier County.
