We are a group of amateur botanists who enjoy finding and identifying native plants on Sanibel. Our walks, visiting different locations on Sanibel, last for two hours, and are guided by a leader with a plant list. The group will meet at the Nature Center porch. Depending on the location visited, you may need parking money. Please bring a hat, water, sun-block and comfortable enclosed shoes with socks. Meet at the Nature Center at 8:30am (depart at 8:45am), at the base of the porch and carpool to the site. Walks are free but donations to SCCF are welcome.
