New rehabilitation and educational complex to open later this year
Stevens Construction has completed construction of an expansion project at the Conservancy of Southwest Florida located at 1495 Smith Preserve Way, announced Mark Stevens, company president.
Stevens Construction completed a new outdoor wildlife rehabilitation area for the Conservancy of Southwest Florida’s von Arx Wildlife Hospital. The expansion includes new wildlife recovery areas and outside structures that allows the Conservancy to enhance its care of wildlife with the goal of rehabilitating animals and returning them to the wild. The new rehabilitation and educational complex will open later this year.
The expansion also features an educational complex that allows visitors to view the Conservancy’s permanent resident animals, referred to Ambassadors, former patients unable to be released due to the extent of their injuries. Visitors will learn about the threats to native wildlife and what the public can do to protect and prevent wildlife injuries.
The project reflects the Conservancy of Southwest Florida’s dedication to protecting Florida’s water, land, wildlife and future.
