Pierce comes aboard after the recent retirement of John Cassani
Codty is a native of Lee County and lifelong outdoorsman, growing up fishing our area waters and spending many years observing the hydrology and environments of Pine Island Sound, Charlotte Harbor and Estero Bay. Codty turned his passion for the environment into a profession, founding his own successful fishing guide and charter business in 2016 and has been featured on television and at tradeshows, including appearing in multiple episodes of Flats Class TV. He also has spent time in his career performing wetlands restoration and native landscaping services.
Codty joins a Calusa Waterkeeper team that now includes Robin Serne (Director of Engagement), Julie Althaver (Fundraising & Donor Relations) and Administrative Coordinator Cindy Swisher along with a dedicated group of volunteer board members and Rangers, and a membership of over 400 active supporters.
The organization will be hosting an event on April 2, 2023, which will include an opportunity to meet Codty, recognize John’s service as the Calusa Waterkeeper and support the mission to protect and restore the Caloosahatchee River from Lake Okeechobee to the Coastal Waters.
