The Celery Fields, a nationally and internationally recognized birding haven, is buffered from industrial uses on the western edge by four tracts of land known as the Quad Parcels. Willis Smith joins owners representative Steve Suau of Progressive Water Resources and site plan engineering firm Kimley-Horn to round out the project team.

“With the addition of wetlands, woodlands and expanded public access, this project is a huge win not only for wildlife, but for people as well,” Sarasota Audubon president Jeanne Dubi said.
