Join us for our special November ‘Corkscrew After Hours’ event:  ”Florida Panthers”. 

Are you feeling like prowling around the Swamp at night?  First learn more about Florida Panthers in our classroom from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. during  FWC's Panther Outreach Specialist, Jayne Johnston's presentation on "Living with Panthers". 

Sunset at 6:44 p.m.               

Moon Phase:   One day before the full moon.  Moonrise: 6:45 p.m. 

The moon will be big so there will not be much of a need for flashlights.  If you do choose to bring one though, please bring a red-light flashlight so as not to ruin yours and others night vision while on the boardwalk.  If you only have a while light flashlight, you can ask at our admissions desk for red cellophane to cover up the lens.

Enjoy live music and exhibits in the Blair Audubon Visitor Center.

  • Shop for unique and beautiful gifts in the Nature Store.
  • Eat, drink and enjoy art exhibits in the Gallery Cafe.
  • Experience the boardwalk in the evening light and participate in educational programs, interpretive exhibits, and guided walks.  See the schedule below. (will be added to later) 

5:30 pm to 9:00 pm

  •  Explore the boardwalk on your own under the stars and listen to the many sounds at night.  Our boardwalk volunteer naturalists will be out there to help you out.  *Please note that only the 1 mile loop of the boardwalk is currently open due to damage from Hurricane Irma.
