Community Science

We have opened the Sanctuary with reduced hours of operation for members as we monitor the spread of COVID-19 in Collier County and the world. We are committed to protecting our visitors, volunteers, and staff from the novel coronavirus, and because our boardwalk is less than six feet wide, we must maintain a low visitation rate to prevent crowding. Registration is required.

Corkscrew's current community science programs are set up to promote environmental awareness and actively engage the public in the collection of data on bird and butterfly species in and near the Sanctuary.  The information collected by our community scientists is used to improve local and national knowledge of bird and butterfly distribution and population trends.  Information collected can also be incorporated into natural resource management plans.

For more information and to register for these community science programs, please see below.
