There are currently no tickets available for this event, but you can still make a donation.


Come see shorebirds nesting on Sand Dollar Island, one of the last natural barrier islands on the Florida coast. We will wade (at least waist deep) across a lagoon to the Island, so bring shoes that can get wet and will not be lost in muck (no flip flops). We will walk past at least one nesting area on the island. Those able and willing to walk all two miles to the end of the north end of the island hopefully will be treated to at least one additional nesting area.

Meet at Tigertail Beach parking lot, 430 Hernando Dr., Marco Island.
