Founded in 1980, Southwest Florida Archaeological Society (SWFAS) is a not-for-profit corporation that provides a meeting place for people interested in the area’s past. The original group was organized to salvage materials as the Bay West Nursery was demucking a pond. It turned out to be a very important, early wet site. Members operate the Craighead Archaeological Laboratory at the Collier County Museum, their reports are printed and submitted to the Florida Anthropologist. The Southwest Florida Archaeological Society (SWFAS) represents Collier and Lee Counties.
