Long-time listeners and readers of News-Press storyteller Amy Bennett Williams are well aware of her passion for Southwest Florida’s wild spaces.  In today’s essay, Williams’ takes us along for a couple of family journeys, hiking the miles of muddy trails in Estero Bay Preserve State Park.  The protected mangroves and marshes in the preserve provide vital habitat for indigenous wildlife and a buffer from the impacts of creeping development on Estero Bay itself, which was Florida’s first aquatic preserve.
