NAPLES — Conservation Collier is cutting the ribbon Friday at its Logan Woods Preserve.
The county’s land preservation program bought the 5.7-acre preserve at the northwest corner of Pine Ridge Road and Logan Boulevard for $712,000 in October 2005.
Originally zoned for residential development, the preserve will provide an urban walking trail and picnic area.
County crews and volunteers have cleared debris and removed invasive exotic plants.
Conservation Collier advisory committee Chairman Bill Poteet will dedicate the preserve at 9 a.m. Friday, followed by a walking tour and light refreshments.
Logan Woods is the fourth Conservation Collier preserves to open to the public.
The others are Otter Mound on Marco Island, Cocohatchee Creek Preserve at Veterans Community Park on Immokalee Road, and part of the Freedom Park along Golden Gate Parkway east of Goodlette-Frank Road.
