Yes, that's correct: Water!!!
|This prairie used to be|
cut off from upstream flows.
New culverts are now getting it
the water it needs.
A year ago and for decades before that the wetlands you are looking at were cut off from flow.
Not any more.
A special and very big thank you to Collier County, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) and the South Florida National Parks Trust (SFNPT) for partnering together with us to put this and other culverts in.
