- Dewees Island in South Carolina creates a pretty chic ecopreserve. All of the houses are new treehouses.
- Catalina Island is isolated and has bison, but also has large facilities and lots of visitors.
- Kentucky's Land Between the Lakes is really a product of the TVA, but now includes a National Recreation Area and bison.
- Florida's Sanibel Island and The Sanibel Plan were a product of Wallace McHarg Roberts and Todd and is considered a landmark in planning.
Some of this is clearly just your basic ecotourism stuff, but on some of these you can see how design really makes a difference.
