Our Nature Center is currently closed. Our trails and offices will remain open. Thank you.
An interlocking maze of four miles of trails allows visitors to choose a short stroll or a longer walk through the quiet heart of the island, paralleling low lying wetlands and the Sanibel Slough. Indoors, an interactive exhibit, maps, and videos describe the challenges of maintaining benchmarks in water quality. A map of our trails can be found here.
Educational programs and guided tour schedules are available here.
The Nature Center is located at 3333 Sanibel-Captiva Road on Sanibel, near mile marker 1 (about one mile west of Tarpon Bay Road). For information call, 239-472-2329.
Please note, we no longer have a butterfly house at the Nature Center; however, our Native Landscapes & Garden Center hosts myriad native butterflies.
