Have you walked along the Gordon River Greenway? Ridden a horse through Pepper Ranch Preserve? Explored the historic Calusa shell mound at Otter Mound Preserve?
These preserves, along with 18 more, are available to the public because of the Conservation Collier program, which has three goals:
• Protecting water quality and supply
• Preserving wildlife habitat
• Enhancing quality of life with greenspace
In 2002, Collier County voters agreed to a 0.25 mil ad valorem tax to fund the program. Organizers are once again asking for taxpayers to renew the program, which cost $25 per year for each $100,000 of taxable property value.
