went on a clear day after the rains. grounds are, well, its a preserve. paths are clear and plenty to see and do....a must do thing especially for the kids!
all of the guides in the conservatory were a great help to show us all of the sights to behold. We came upon many birds,alligators and fishing guests ready to show my husband what they were using for bait and the catch of the day! A great drive through!
This is a good stop for those who are interested in land use and conservation, as well as wildlife. There is a nice observation tower and a number of trails. There is a nice gift shop and display area with a few specimens of local wildlife. It is a good place to see the results of hard work on the... 更多
We stopped by the visitor center and learned a great deal about the ecosystem and wildlife that comprise Sanibel. The people that support this organization are well informed and passionate about the island. The organization and many volunteers that support SCCF play a critical role in maintaining the environment that makes Sanibel special for all of us to enjoy. In... 更多
You enjoy the island, right? Well, it doesn't conserve itself. Go over there and give them some of your money. Now that you know this you have to go.

Sit in on some... 更多
We almost always enjoy this favorite stop. This time the trails were totally overgrown. If we hadn't been there before there were spots that we would have missed the trail. what happened?
We visited the new location for plant sales off Periwinkle Drive. We were amazed at the space and the selection. We noticed what seemed to be a teaching area to explain to visitors how to respect nesting birds, nesting turtles, and other wildlife. This area wasn't fully developed when we were there, but we find the concept intriguing and hope... 更多

We had one of their volunteers as our guide on a dolphin cruise, older man, dry sense of humor who made what would have otherwise been a very routine experience into a very informative and entertaining one. I was amazed the extent of his dolphin knowledge, he... 更多
