Management Programs of Cockroach Bay Aquatic Preserve Quick Topics

Recently-planted marsh grasses take hold in a wetland restoration site.

  • Resource Management

    The resource management program partnered with other groups such as the Southwest Florida Water Management to reclaim nearby agricultural lands and shell quarries, as well as removing invasive exotic plants and plant native plants.
  • Education and Outreach

    The staff promoted public awareness of local environmental resources and issues through displays at festivals, boat shows and other events.
  • Research and Monitoring

    The aquatic preserve's proximity to major urban centers and several universities as well as research institutes allows the opportunity for many partnerships, filling in the gaps of information needed for sound resource management. When a research need is not being met, staff encouraged existing research programs to address the need or implement their own project to gather the information.
