Shipley Trail at Bailey Homestead Guided Walk

10:00 am-11:00 am Bailey Homestead

Take a guided walk on the SCCF Shipley Trail. Stroll across the Star Thomas Memorial Bridge and then connect with Pond Apple Trail. Learn how SCCF manages this property as wildlife habitat on Sanibel’s populated east end.  The walk will meander along Pond Apple trail around the man-made ponds that are home to wildlife such as alligators, anhingas, and woodstorks.  Even eagles may be spotted.  Park and meet your guide at the Welcome Kiosk at the head of the Shipley Trail, at the SCCF Bailey Homestead Preserve at 1300 Periwinkle Way.  The kiosk is immediately to the left as you enter thru the gate into the preserve.   This is a mostly shaded, easy walk lasting approximately one hour. No charge for the walks.
