OUR STORY

The story of the Collier County Waterkeeper starts at its founding in August of 2015.  The story of Collier County, Florida starts long before that.  The Waterkeeper Alliance is an internationally recognized, grassroots style organization that promotes swimmable, drinkable and fishable waterways. Collier County has transformed from groups of unknown fishing villages to a global tourist destination since the founding of the city if Naples in 1880 by Kentucky US Senator, John Stuart Williams.  Where once the only people strolling the white sandy beaches and fishing in crystal-clear water were the Caloosa Indians, today, fresh water is pumped into the Gordon River by the billions of gallons, litter the beaches with plastic, and have a focus on developing rather than saving our wet lands . This global reputation of Collier County is supported entirely by the health and vitality of our waterways; it is the aim of the Collier County Waterkeeper  to keep these waters swimmable, fishable and drinkable for millennia to come.
