It’s time to get the CREW Marsh and CREW Cypress Dome Trails ready for the busy season of visitors ahead, and we need your help. We will be clearing trails, sweeping boardwalks, pulling exotic plants, picking up trash along the roads, trimming branches, repairing structures, and more.
Bring gloves, rakes, clippers, saws, brooms, shovels, etc. (If you have a gas-powered weed wacker, please call us at 239-657-2253 to let us know if you can bring that) CREW will provide some tools and equipment, water, and snacks.
Comfortable close-toed shoes and long pants are recommended, as are sunscreen and a hat. We'll provide water and snacks, but you are also encouraged to bring your own water. You might want to bring lunch, too.
FGCU students can earn 5 hours of service-learning credits for this work day. Bring your forms with you when you come and be sure to sign in and out.
Children who partricpate must be accompanied by an adult.
Meet at the CREW Cypress Dome Trails - do not use the Google Map - it is incorrect. The Cypress Dome Tails are 14 miles east of I-75 (exit 123) on Lee County's Corkscrew Road.
When & Where
CREW Land & Water Trust
The CREW Land & Water Trust was established in 1989 as a nonprofit organization to coordinate the land acquisition, land management, and public use of the 60,000-acre Corkscrew Regional Ecosystem Watershed. We work closely with our partners, the South Florida Water Management District and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission to ensure the protection of the watershed. This watershed, the largest intact watershed in south Florida, straddles Lee and Collier Counties and provides aquifer recharge, natural flood protection, water purification, preservation of wildlife habitat, and public recreation. CREW's majestic 5,000-acre marsh is the headwaters for the entire watershed.
