SanCap Kiwanis recently welcomed James Evans, Executive Director of the Sanibel Captiva Conservation Foundation (SCCF), as a guest speaker at their meeting. James informed the Club that SCCF, founded in 1967, now has almost 40 employees and over 2000 acres of land under their stewardship, and continues to serve as a leading force in water quality and land management initiatives.

SanCap Kiwanis has a long-standing history of supporting the Sanibel Captiva Conservation Foundation through various initiatives, including grants to their Sea School.

During the meeting, James provided insights into the rebuilding of the SCCF programs and facilities since the storm James also recounted SCCF’s efforts to help rebuild the community in the immediate aftermath of the storm — by donating its undamaged vehicles to first responders on Sanibel Island within 24 hours of the storm, and by making available its staff members to respond to the needs of our residents.
