Stewardship Forest Award
At a recent Caloosa Task Group Meeting the Department of Forestry awarded Camp Caloosa with the Stewardship Forest Award. Lee County Senior Forester Michael Weston presented a Land Stewardship plaque and a Stewardship recognition sign, (to post at our property) to CEO Sandi Stewart and board member Rock Abooujaoude. Girl Scouts of Gulfcoast Florida has been recognized for our diligence and commitment related to our land management practices. We have worked with the department of Forestry in developing a complex land management plan which includes removal of all exotic and invasive vegetative species, harvesting high fuel timber, replanting native species, and providing maintenance to avoid exotics re-growth and survival of new seedlings.
