Investors Warranty of America has closed on the disposition of a 4,000 acre tract of land to Lee County in a $42.435 million sale. The property, known as Edison Farms, is connected to existing state and county owned lands and will be utilized as a conservation site. The sale consists of around 2,800 acres of undisturbed wetland habitat, and hydric pine flatwoods. The remaining 1,200 acres consist of upland pods that have been identified as developable but will remain intact and will not for development. Edison Farms is located within the Estero Bay Watershed and contains headwaters for three major tributaries to Estero Bay.

“The use of this property directly aligns with the goals of Conservation 20/20,” stated Randy Thibaut, CEO of Land Solutions, Inc. “By preserving 4,000 acres of land in Southwest Florida, Lee County has the opportunity to restore impaired flowways, improve water quality and storage within the DR/GR and Estero Bay, and protect wildlife habitats. We are very excited to see Edison Farms evolve into the ‘Central Park of Lee County’ and I am honored to be a part of this conservation effort.”
