GOOD NEWS FOR ESTERO!
On January 9, 2019, the Village of Estero finalized the purchase of the 67 Estero on the River acres which surround the Happehatchee Center. These precious woods, river and wildlife will be further protected.
Village of Estero Councilor Katy Errington and Happehatchee Center volunteers celebrate the Village's decision to purchase the land within the northeast quadrant of the Corkscrew Road and US 41 intersection. Ms. Errington, Happehatchee representatives, and community members have been working together since 2015 to protect the natural forest on the former Koreshan land and to maintain 200 feet of Riparian buffers, with no building, along the Estero River banks.
