There are 5000 ft. of shoreline on the Caloosahatchee River and small tidal streams meander into the interior. Wildlife that may be seen include various herons and egrets, otters, raccoons, woodpeckers, and migratory birds. Infrequent visitors include alligators, osprey, anhingas, cormorants, white ibis and ducks. The tidal creeks are home to many small fish and the young of our game fish species, which take shelter in the mangroves and marshes to escape predators and find food. In this way saltwater wetlands are vitally important in acting as nurseries for our fish and shellfish.Show more
