Collier County is globally known for its extraordinary number of pristine waterways. Our major water landmarks include Rookery Bay, Gordon River, Naples Bay, Wiggins and Gordon Pass, Big Cypress, Marco Island, Keewaydin Island, and 10,000 Islands. The waterways surrounding these landmarks are home to some of the most diverse ecosystems in the state of Florida. Rookery Bay, for example, contains a massive mangrove forest that is home to many endangered animals from the loggerhead turtle to the Golden Eagle. And the waters off Marco Island support a breeding ground for sharks, stingrays, and dolphins. Big Cypress is a national park consisting of over 700,000 acres of protected swamp land and seasonal wetlands essential to the health of the neighboring Everglades and supports the rich marine estuaries along Florida's southwest coast.
A Kentucky native, Harrison Langley has resided in Naples, FL for most of his life, and was introduced to Waterkeeper Alliance while attending the College of Charleston. He has been working to promote the sustainable and recreational use of local waterways since founding the Collier County Waterkeeper in 2015.
