Recently, the Calusa Land Trust celebrated Nancy Rogers generous contribution to the trust by naming a nature trail at the Wigert Barron Preserve the "Nancy Rogers Trail"

Rogers, who has lived on Pine Island for many years, made a very generous donation to the Calusa Land Trust recently.

"On behalf of the members of the Calusa Land Trust, we thank you very much for your generous support," CLT president Robert Ballard said. "This goes a long way to helping us to protect and preserve the natural beauty of Pine Island."

The Wigert Barron Preserve is a 31-acre preserve located near the east end of Barrancas Avenue in Bokeelia. The first 9 acres were donated in 2014 by the Barron family and the second donation of 29 acres came from Jon and Annette Wigert. The preserve also has a fresh water pond named after long time Clausa Land Trust member Rubye Woodhead.

"The restoration of this preserve is near completion," former CLT president John Kendall said. "The Nancy Rogers trail has been marked for everyone to enjoy."
