Geocaching and other forms of GIS-based activities are great ways to explore and get to know your Conservation Collier Preserves. This type of activity is welcomed and at the same time must be done within guidelines in order to be safe for all and to protect the plants and wildlife. After reviewing many other agency rules, Conservation Collier has proposed and the Board of County Commissioners has approved the following rules for GIS-based Activities on Conservation Collier Preserves. Geocachers must fill out a no-charge Authorization Form and obtain the approval of the Preserve Manager at the Preserve where they wish to place the cache. Please click the link to the electronic Authorization Request Form below and we will contact you and direct you to the appropriate Preserve Manager. Please do not hesitate to call us at (239) 252-2961 or e-mail us at
ConservationCollier@Colliergov.net if you have questions .
GIS-based Activities Rules:
GIS activity participants are encouraged to visit the www.geocaching.com, www.Floridacaching.com and www.waymarking.com websites to learn more about local and international rules for geocaching. The Leave no Trace website www.leavenotrace.ca website also provides helpful principles for planning safe and environmentally respectful outdoor recreational activities.
When posting caches on the Internet, please say "Permission granted by Conservation Collier."
