The Conservancy of Southwest Florida, located in Naples, and its construction management partners celebrated a ceremonial ground “planting” on Earth Day to mark the launch of its campus renovation project. The $17-million initiative will transform the 21-acre campus into a model for sustainable design and environmental responsibility.

It will feature a wildlife rehabilitation clinic, nature discovery center, hands-on learning lab, environmental planning center, conservation hall, a new entrance and a filter marsh designed to enhance Gordon River and Naples Bay water quality.

Team members include: Keith Predmore & Associates; Warner Architects; Cambridge 7 Associates; Heatherwood Construction; Hole Montes; and the Conservancy of Southwest Florida.
