  • Click here for a map of all Conservation Collier Preserves!  Since 2003, the Conservation Collier Program has been acquiring properties of high natural resource value throughout Collier County from willing sellers. Properties acquired met specific criteria including: rare habitat, aquifer recharge, flood control, water quality protection, and listed species habitat.

    At the program's inception, the Collier County Board of County Commissioners (Board) appointed a Land Acquisition Advisory Committee (Committee) to consider and make recommendations on offered properties. The Committee's recommendations have resulted in Board approval for and acquisition of 4,060 acres in 19 project locations throughout Collier County. 

Process:  Lands offered to the program were required to meet at least 2 out of the 6 Initial Screening Criteria to qualify for further evaluation and potential acquisition. After presentation of qualified acquisition proposals throughout each year, the Committee would rank them to create a recommended Active Acquisition List (AAL) in December.   The Board was presented this list for review and approval in January of the following year.  Once an approved AAL was received, staff  pursued acquisition of top ranked parcels and began accepting proposals for the next ranking cycle.   As of January 25, 2011, however, all acquisition revenues have been committed and acquisition cycles are suspended.
