Conservationist Robert Gore passed away on February, 2017. Dr. Gore bought land in east Collier County, parcel by parcel, with the vision to create a wildlife sanctuary and educate children about the importance of preservation. Inspired by Dr. Gore's life and purpose, Cypress Cove Conservancy has been working to acquire his land with the idea to restore the house he built, create a Nature Center and continue his legacy.
The Naples Daily News published his obituary back in February and has just released "Conservation group hopes to save sanctuary that was Bob Gore's life's work" a special story about Gore and his property in East Collier. You can read the story by clicking here. The paper also published an old video of Dr. Gore expressing his intention to preserve the land and his vision for the future.
Naithloriendun, the name Dr. Robert Gore gave to his land, is a celtic word meaning 'a place between two woods.' Below are some pictures of CCC members working or visiting Naithloriendun. Click on the photo.
