Half of what you see is the Galt Preserve is a 265 acre parcel purchased by Lee County Florida between 2002 and 2007 for $4.4 million. The invasive plant melaleuca was removed and it is now mesic flatwoods and a mangrove swamp bordering Pine Island Sound. It is home to many birds including a nesting pair of bald eagles as well as racoons, opossum, bobcats, alligators and turkey vultures. What a gift we have in the preserves of Lee County Parks & Recreation Conservation 20/20 program land management plan. The northern portion is agricultural land owned by King Ranch of Fort Myers owning 100 acres just north of Galt Preserve.
