Hurricane-Damaged Intern Housing Torn Down
In early June, SCCF said a final farewell to its intern housing that was destroyed during Hurricane Ian on Sept. 28, 2022.
The housing provided a place for SCCF interns and staff for 34 years.
While it’s sad to see them go, SCCF will be collaborating with award-winning architect firm CO-G on a new structure that will be built around the concepts of resilience, native landscapes, and community.
The original intern buildings were set to be demolished by a resort in the 1980s, and previous SCCF CEO Erick Lindblad decided to save the structures, moving them to their permanent location on Sanibel-Captiva Road and raising them 13 feet off the ground.
