Collier Enterprises and its founders have donated and conveyed more than 260,000 acres of land — 25 times the size of the City of Naples — over the years. Those parcels have helped create large-scale conservation areas that today make up more than 75 percent of Collier County.
Due to this forward thinking and deep appreciation of the environment, the public – and regional wildlife species – can forever enjoy ecologically important and much-loved preserves including Collier Seminole State Park, Everglades National Park, Big Cypress National Preserve, Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary, Florida Panther National Wildlife Refuge, Fakahatchee Strand State Preserve, and Ten Thousand Islands National Wildlife Refuge.
Collier Enterprises also has donated or made land available for other community uses, such as the north campus of Naples Community Hospital, the Isabel Collier Read Health Park in Immokalee, and a portion of the Naples Botanical Garden.
Over 43 acres of land were donated for the popular Gordon River Greenway, a scenic nature trail with water access along the Gordon River in the heart of Naples.
