Protecting our Water and Environment

November 15, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Engage Estero is pleased to inform you of this critical meeting open to the public and our members. There will be two very experienced speakers on water quality issues and problems:

Captain Chris Wittman—Captains for Clean Water

Captain Wittman will discuss The Impact of the threats to the Everglades and why that is Important for Estero. He is a lifelong outdoors person, spending over 20 years as a fishing and hunting guide, nationally renowned tournament angler, on-camera host, and TV show producer. As a fourth-generation Florida native, Capt. Chris witnessed firsthand the destruction caused by Florida’s water mismanagement, leading him to co-found Captains for Clean Water.


Captain Codty Pierce – Calusa Waterkeeper

Captain Pierce will discuss the urbanization of greater Estero: the threats to our water quality and what can be done to minimize the impact. He is a lifelong resident of the Caloosahatchee watershed. Growing up along one of its tributaries helped shape his passion, love, and admiration for the area’s history and biodiversity. Codty’s early background in reptiles, wetland restoration, and native plant landscaping, coupled with a career as a professional fishing guide, has created a unique collage of his in-the-field experience across local uplands, wetlands, estuaries, and nearshore Gulf waters. As a Waterkeeper, Codty’s mission is to protect and restore the Caloosahatchee River from Lake Okeechobee to Coastal Waters and a passion for uniting and protecting this unique watershed.


Jim Gilmartin will deliver the President’s Report, providing an update on other vital initiatives Engage Estero plans and addresses.
