Community event highlights importance of clean water

One of the things that makes Southwest Florida special is the water.

From the Caloosahatchee River to its beaches.

On Saturday, the community is gathering in Bonita Springs to learn about keeping the area’s waterways clean and healthy.

The event is hosted by the Bonita Springs Estero Association of Realtors alongside the FGCU Water School, Captains for Clean Water and the Calusa Waterkeeper.

Greg Tolley, with FGCU Water School, said the first step to protecting nature is raising awareness.

“Part of that is working with our communities to make sure that they have water quality and water quantity that they need to stay healthy and economically viable, and enjoy the quality of life that we always enjoy,” Tolley said.

The event goes from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Riverside Park in Bonita Springs. Music and food will be available but so will scientists and water experts.
