Florida Gulf Coast University and the Estuary Conservation Association launch the Cocohatchee River and Estuary Guardian initiative today at the Pelican Isle Yacht Club in North Naples.
The program is a joint effort to ensure the environmental health, boating and fishing opportunities and the quality eco-tourism potential of the Cocohatchee watershed. It runs from Delnor Wiggins Pass, under Vanderbilt Beach Road, crosses U.S. 41 to Immokalee Road where it connects to a drainage canal from Golden Gate. FGCU associate professor of Environmental Studies, John Fitch, says it’s extensive and interesting watershed.
He spoke with WGCU's Amy Tardif.
