Sunset Stroll at Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary

As responsible members of our communities, Audubon has cancelled all public programs provided by our nature centers, community naturalists, and other outreach staff through April 30th. We are deeply sorry for the inconvenience this may cause, but it is far more important that we participate and encourage social distancing best practices and not be encouraging public gatherings. Please stay apprised of our latest updates and responses to the COVID-19 situation here on our website. In the future: Enjoy this guided walk on the boardwalk in Corkscrew's Ancient Bald Cypress Forest as the day draws to a close.

This naturalist guided boardwalk tour leads you into the swamp as the day draws to a close.  As twilight approaches many creatures are winding down their day as nocturnal creatures are beginning theirs.  Watch sunset from the observation tower, then listen to the changes in sounds as the day changes to night.  Search for nocturnal creatures on the way back to the visitor center, and learn about some of their adaptations that enable them to be nocturnal.  For the last hour of this tour it will be fairly dark, with little or no moonlight. but that will make for better night sky viewing.

Your Naturalist will meet you in our visitor center or in our parking lot (for the April walk)  fifteen minutes prior to the departure time.  We will be walking the entire boardwalk (2 miles in length). 

*Participants should not bring white-light flashlights, as those ruin everyone's night vision.  We will have red-light flashlights that we will bring along in case we want to use them.

There is a total limit of 12 participants on each Sunset Stroll. Ages 10 and up are welcome on this walk, however participants aged 10 - 18 must be accompanied by an adult participant.

Upcoming Dates and Times:  TBD
