St. James Creek Preserve

The St James Creek Preserve is the primary conservation area for the southern end of Pine Island. It constitutes the entire mangrove fringe from the St James City Post Office to the Eighth Avenue Canal, as well as a large tract of prime Southern Florida flatwoods. The Preserve provides a perfect habitat for an incredible variety of Pine Island wildlife. It also plays an important if not critical role in the pristine air we enjoy on Pine Island and serves as a filter between development and the waters of Matlacha Pass and San Carlos Bay. The St. James Creek Preserve includes the 50 acres donated by and the 320 acres purchased from The St. Jude Harbor Corporation, the 55-acre Castille Corridor. With the 118-acre Eagle Preserve (owned by Lee County), a total of 543 acres of environmentally sensitive property that will be preserved forever.

A Saturday afternoon adventure with guide Ed Chapin, Chief Ranger and board of director of the Calusa Land Trust. This will be out of Pine Island. Ed does ask for a donation to the trust, and well worth it for the guided tour .

    Great ride. Like, zip lining in a kayak! Always an adventure with Ed! We all behaved and will be invited to go with him again. Thank you all so much for your donations to the Calusa Land Trust. We appreciate it to preserve the land.

    I don't have a kayak. I just saw there are no rentals. I guess I will have to cancel unless some one has an extra ride for me. Boo Hoo
