Cela Tega conferences have been organized by the Estero Bay Agency on Bay Management in cooperation with Florida Gulf C Coast University. The sites below have links to each presentation at those conferences.
The first conference was in June of 2008 Estero Bay Land Management Cela Tega .
next was the Land Acquisition Cela Tega (December, 2008)
in 2011 we held he Conservation Lands Economic Value Cela Tega. The presentation from this conference have been very helpful in quantifying the direct economic value of conservation lands in terms of jobs, real estate properties water pollution credits, etc.
Cela Tega is the southwest Florida native (i.e.: Calusa) term for “A view from high ground”. We used it here to symbolize “overview”. The term was inspired from the Carib Native North American term epopopanana meaning:
this is Meeting (Epopo) + And (ana) +Place (Pa) which in Carib syntax is Epopopanana
