The Naples Preserve is a 9 ½ acre site within the City of Naples. To save it from development, it was purchased by the citizens of the City of Naples (2000) along with Florida Community Trust Forever Florida funds (2002). A 0.4 mile-long accessible boardwalk winds through oak-rosemary scrub and pine flatwoods. Our gopher tortoises and birds (especially migrating and winter residents) are favorites of our guests. The Hedges Family Eco-center provides information about the nature destinations in Collier County, nature talks, programs for schools, and is home to the Robert W.
