In 2004 the South Florida Water Management District began dismantling a failed housing development east of Naples known as South Golden Gate Estates. Now known as the Picayune Strand Restoration - the project is slowly re-establishing the hydrology of an area that’s been home to some of the most diverse wildlife and plant communities in North America. Once believed by loggers and developers to be nothing more than a swamp, this unique environment has been interrupted by man since the 1940’s. WGCU’s Christine Buckley visited the site to see how things are progressing.
