  • SCCF’s Bailey Homestead Preserve and Native Landscapes & Garden Center to learn about early settlers to the islands and our basic ecology.
  • SCCF’s Marine Laboratory and other properties to hear from SCCF researchers about wildlife, habitat, and water quality.
  • Captiva Cruises for an informative boat ride exploring Pine Island Sound, its ocean creatures, and some of SCCF’s mangrove restoration work.

Only 28 spots are available. Click below to learn more and register.
