Looking for “extra” things to do on your Sanibel family vacation this summer?
The Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife (CROW) has announced that they will be adding extra presentations at 2 p.m. on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays through August 16.
Daily presentations, which are also offered Monday through Friday at 11 am in CROW’s AWC Visitor Education Center, allow visitors to engage with a staff member or student while learning more about the patients admitted to CROW’s wildlife hospital. Presentations last approximately 45 minutes and topics cover a variety of native Southwest Florida wildlife such as gopher tortoises, owls and snakes.
“We want to ensure everyone who visits CROW has an opportunity to interact with our staff and meet our ambassadors,” says Alison Charney Hussey, CROW’s executive director. “With the increase of summer visitors we have had this year, more presentations were needed.”
The additional afternoon topics will include ‘Virginia Opossums’ each Wednesday, ‘Sea Turtles’ on Thursdays and ‘Birds of Prey’ every Friday. Each presentation features one of CROW’s Animal Ambassadors, non-releasable wildlife due to injury or other circumstances.
CROW’s AWC Visitor Education Center is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The daily presentations are included with general admission, $12 for adults, $7 for ages 4-12 and free for those 3 and under. ‘Wildlife Walk’ guided hospital tours are also offered Monday through Friday at 11 a.m. for an additional cost and advanced registration.
