Field Trip to Crowley Nature Center

March 8 @ 7:30 AM - 10:00 AM


Join Sharon Wilcox on a guided bird walk through Crowley Nature Center. $3 donation per person. Meet at the bridge (just beyond the Crowley Center entrance)

The nature trail winds through the Crowley property from high and dry pine flatwoods, through the shady oak hammock, over the Maple Branch swamp, and out to the edge of the expansive Tatum Sawgrass Marsh along the Myakka River. The wide trails offer easy and pleasant walking conditions that are enjoyed by people of all ages and abilities.

Everyone is welcome to attend walks. 

When going bird watching it is important to be well-prepared and comfortable. Here is a checklist of what to bring and wear: 

  • Wear comfortable shoes since there will be walking
  • Hat to shield you from the sun and reduce glare
  • Binoculars for close up view of birds. 
  • Field guide, eBird & Merlin apps are helpful in bird identification – your guides will help 
  • Water to stay hydrated
  • Sunscreen and Insect Repellant 

Meet in the parking lot. There is a $6 fee for Admission into the Crowley Museum & Nature Center.
