Charlotte Harbor Flatwoods Initiative

Data and Document Repository

The Charlotte Harbor Flatwoods Initiative is a multi-phased regional hydrologic restoration effort coordinated by the South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) and Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC). The project area is approximately 90 square miles and includes the following sub-watersheds: 1) Yucca Pen Creek Creek, 2) Durden Creek, 3) Greenwell Branch, 4) Longview Run and 5) Gator Slough. Runoff from these systems originates in the northeastern reaches of the Babcock-Webb Wildlife Management Area (WMA) in Charlotte County within the SFWMD and then passes through the Southwest Florida Water Management District (SWFWMD) to reach the outfall in Lee County within the SFWMD again.

The FWC has developed A Management Plan for Fred C. Babcock-Cecil M. Webb Wildlife Management Area 2014-2024. The plan was approved by the Division of State Lands, Office of Environmental Services on February 16, 2015. (The appendices to the report are listed in the Documents section below.)
