Collier Enterprises is among Florida's largest land owners. Our commitment to responsible stewardship of this land includes preservation of large natural areas and open spaces, as well as planning for high quality, sustainable new communities and other projects.
Over the years, Collier Enterprises has donated or made land available to maintain the environmental and economic health of southwest Florida. Examples include the north campus of Naples Community Hospital, the Isabel Collier Read Healthpark in Immokalee, and the site of the Naples Botanical Garden. Just recently we partnered with the Naples Botanical Garden to name the South Wetlands in the future preserve area and support associated conservation programming. These contributions are consistent with a long tradition of environmental stewardship by the Collier family, which has been instrumental in the creation of the Big Cypress National Preserve, Florida Panther National Wildlife Refuge, Ten Thousand Islands National Wildlife Refuge and Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary.
Our environmentally focused planning has been recognized for providing a high quality of life within healthy natural ecosystems. Collier Enterprises created the world's first Audubon International Signature Cooperative Sanctuary at our Collier's Reserve country club community, as well as the first Audubon International Gold Signature Sanctuary at The Old Collier Golf Club. Both awards acknowledge our company's leadership in environmental stewardship and our sensitive merging of wildlife protection, water conservation and habitat enhancement with a sound business plan.
