Rookery Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve in Collier County recently unveiled a new permanent exhibit in conjunction with the second annual Southwest Florida History and Archaeology Festival.
The new exhibit at the National Estuarine Research Reserve’s Environmental Learning Center explores how humans have interacted with the local area over the past 3000 years. Visitors to the Center can learn about the role Native Americans and pioneers played in preserving the environment though photographs, videos, replicas, artifacts and timelines. The exhibit was funded by the Department of Environmental Protection and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
