Clayton Weigel The CREW Land and Water Trust is a private, non-profit conservation organization dedicated to the preservation and stewardship of the water resources and natural communities in and around the Corkscrew Regional Ecosystem Watershed (CREW). About CREW 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. CREW is a 60,000-acre watershed and is the largest intact watershed in all of Southwest Florida, spanning both Lee and Collier Counties.
Much of the CREW watershed is owned and managed by the South Florida Water Management District
This watershed provides many natural and economical services, including replenishing the aquifer that provides our drinking water, natural protection from floods, and natural water purification.
CREW is an important habitat for many of Florida's native species, including panthers, alligators, and bears, which are monitored by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. The CREW project spans southern Lee and northern Collier Counties in southwest Florida. It includes the Corkscrew Marsh, Bird Rookery Swamp, Flint Pen Strand, Camp Keais Strand, and National Audubon’s famous Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary. Guided Hikes at CREW
Guided Walks at CREW Marsh- From November to April, three times a month, Dr. David Cooper, Florida Master Naturalist leads guided walks at the CREW Marsh trails
Love In the Wild- annual Valentine's Day hike that explains the methods of attraction and reproduction between different species that inhabit CREW
With ever increasing development in Southwest Florida, wildlife reserves such as CREW are vital.
As population and development continue to expand, CREW remains an asset of increasing value as the only undisturbed watershed in southwest Florida.
CREW is part of a grand scheme of swamps, marshes, and rivers that recharge our drinking water supply and directs water flow to the western Everglades and the Gulf of Mexico. Video by Chris Griffith
