Conservancy’s Phase One Renovation Complete

Jan 24, 2013 06:50PM

The first phase of the Conservancy of Southwest Florida’s renovations has been completed, and guests and members are invited to travel over Smith Preserve Way, the new entrance from Goodlette-Frank Road, into the Nature Center. Once there, they can enjoy the Dalton Discovery Center, take an electric boat ride from the Allyn Family Lagoon and Dock, view visiting wading birds at the Shotwell Wavering Family Filter Marsh and perhaps spot some resident gopher tortoises from the gazebo overlooking the Christopher B. Smith Preserve.

The Conservancy will celebrate its Grand Reopening Weekend Festival on April 20 to 21, and all guest experiences will be open at that time.

Location: 1450 Merrihue Dr., Naples. For more information, call 239-262-0304 or visit
