Panther collaboration, protection
Please read the guest editorial from the April 5 Naples Daily News.
This is a fundamental strategy (collaboration on incentive-based ways to
engage landowners) AWE and our allies employ to protect large landscapes
of habitat in the Western Everglades.

Humiston & Moore Engineers to
sponsor 2015-2016 programs
Audubon of the Western Everglades is pleased to announce
that Humiston & Moore Engineers will be sponsoring our Programs this
season at the Naples Botanical Garden.
Humiston & Moore Engineers was established in 1991
to specialize in civil engineering projects within the dynamic coastal
zone. H&M works with coastal communities, governmental agencies, and
private property owners, offering services that include beach nourishment
and other alternatives to erosion control, inlet and navigation channel
maintenance, marina design, Coastal Construction Control Line permitting,
and FEMA flood zone mapping. Our Engineers employ a full complement of
state-of-the-art technical and modeling tools combined with years of hands-on
experience with coastal construction to develop practical applied solutions.
H&M has developed unique solutions that have successfully solved problems
under challenging site conditions where there were either natural resource
or regulatory constraints. Our philosophy, that fully understanding the
complex processes that cause erosion is essential to designing successful
projects, is also the key to designing projects that will effectively restore
natural coastal systems.
Welcome to Audubon of the Western Everglades
Founded in 1961, Audubon of the Western
Everglades is the oldest conservation organization in Collier County. We
are one of 43 local Florida chapters dedicated to preserving the quality
of life in our respective communities.
One of our primary efforts is maintaining
an awareness of local, regional, and state environmental and conservation
issues. Accordingly, our mission, in partnership with Audubon of Florida
and National Audubon Society, is to promote an understanding of and interest
in wildlife and the environment that supports it, and to further the cause
of conservation of all of our natural resources.
We offer a variety of activities in which
everyone may participate: guided field trips to sites throughout
Southwest Florida, evening programs with guest speakers from November through
April, grants that allow county elementary schools to bring classes to
Audubon's Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary for field trips and for activities
at specially constructed educational trails and sites, and we have a conservation
committee that is active and influential at the local, regional, and state
levels on environmental issues.
We invite you to join us as a member,
to enjoy and support programs and activities that appeal to you, and to
become a part of preserving and protecting our natural heritage and all
of its wild life.
