Deane and Chris invite you to enjoy some of the natural beauty of Southwest Florida. They live on Big Corkscrew Island in Northeast Collier county, in the western edges of the Everglades.

      EVERGLADES - THE ONLY ONE ON EARTH (see note bottom page) 

                                                                                    

This feature dominates all South Florida and it is interesting to see how  it effects growth  and development here.  The CERP (Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan) administered by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, is the most gigantic effort in world history to allow humans to direct the evolutionary growth of an area.

 

 

An early area  in  Naples to  see  effects  of  CERP was Southern Golden Gate Estates  

 ( The Picayune Strand Restoration of    South west Everglades )

Roads are being removed, buildings bulldozed, exotic species of plants  burned  to make  way  for  the  natural  plant life to grow back.

    (EXOTIC PLANTS ARE HARMFUL)

 

Water  pumped  out  and  the  canals being  filled in with soil to restore  the  natural  sheet   flow  of   water  though  the 55,000 acres in northeastern Collier County. Scrap metal  and trash  left behind  by  the   past  residents of Southern Golden Gate  Estates  lays  waiting  to be hauled away. A grader works along demolished  roads. 

With  this  restoration  project  in progress, workers labor to  remove most of the roads, canals and other signs of development.
