All Conservation Collier Preserves are closed due to damage from Hurricane Irma.  We have a massive amount of clean-up to do ensure each preserve and trail are safe for public use. Many of our preserves have substantial flooding as well.  Please be patient as we will try to get them cleaned up as soon as possible.  Please check this page and our follow our Facebook page for updates on when each preserve is declared safe and ready for use!

  • 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 are 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 Conservation Collier Land Acquisition Advisory Committee (CCLAAC) will rank them to create a recommended Active Acquisition List (AAL) in December.   The Board of County Commissioners will presented this list for review and approval in January of the following year.  Once an approved AAL is received, staff  will pursue acquisition of top ranked parcels and began accepting proposals for the next ranking cycle.
