On our doorstep in Southwest Florida; the Gore Estate has become a permanent preserve / nature sanctuary right here in Golden Gate Estates via a public-private partnership with Conservation Collier & the Cypress Cove Conservancy.



Naithloriendun Sanctuary; also known as the Gore Sanctuary from its founder Bob Gore, who had built up and pieced together his Golden Gate Estates landholding and created this private Nature Preserve for us all to treasure & protect.   His wish was to see it all remain together.



Bobbie Lee Davenport, (info below) is president of the Cypress Cove Conservancy who is spearheading this very worthwhile project.



The property is located off DeSoto Boulevard near 40th Ave Southeast; Naples FL 34117, just north of I75 / Alligator Alley and just outside the Florida Panther National Wildlife Refuge.



Naithloriendun Sanctuary has come about as the result of a planned public-private partnership with Conservation Collier, the county's land preservation program.  It currently concists of a combined total of 179 Acres.



The Cypress Cove Conservancy has already raised a significant amount of money for the project, and they continually seek more funding through different methods; soon artwork will be available for sale to help raise funds; please click here for more information and photos of the artwork.



Approximately 169 acres have been purchased by Collier County around the Naithloriendun house.  The original estate was a total of 180 acres, but the county declined to purchase parcels that are not directly connected to the main sanctuary.



The property is known for having many types / species of animals & nature including panthers and bears, and is near other preserves such as the Fakahatchee Strand and Picayune Strand.



Technically the property is mostly wetlands. In geological terms we are told that the property is “karst”, a type of formation similar to a large limestone sponge.



Plans are in place to make the Naithloriendun house into a nature center with trails running throughout the entire sanctuary, and it is due to open to the public soon.



When asked why they were doing this; this was how Bobbie Lee responded; “We want to work with the community, really, to bring people out into nature.   A lot of kids these days have never really had that connection to the natural world.”



The county has emphasized that the community favors projects such as preservation of the Gore property.  “The community voted for Conservation Collier because they wanted these kinds of spaces, so this is an opportunity for the northern Golden Gate Estates to have a nature center in it,” a representative from the County said. “We’re looking forward to working on it and adding it to our inventory and providing a place for Collier residents to see the real Florida.”



Bobbie Lee’s Message to everyone: “The Naithloriendun sanctuary comes to Golden Gate Estates this year! check out our website and face book page.”
