The National Weather Service has issued a Severe Thunderstorm Warning for Collier County in some areas with severe wind gusts due to the effects of Tropical Storm Elsa.

For the safety of members and staff, we are closing all Foundation facilities, including beach, tram, and restaurant operations due to inclement weather and will continue to monitor weather conditions throughout the next day. We will notify the community once it is safe to reopen Foundation facilities.

Please continue to monitor the Foundation website, e-newsletters, the mobile app, and the digital reader boards for updates.
