Programs

Early Birding Walks

As responsible members of our communities, Audubon has cancelled all public programs provided by our nature centers, community naturalists, and other outreach staff through at least June 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: Early rising visitors won't want to miss out on these special morning birding walks.

Next Event Date:  TBD  (All Early Birding Walks are from 8 to 11 a.m.)  

 

Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary is an Important Bird Area, part of the Atlantic Flyway for bird migration, is one of the gateway sites for the Great Florida Birding Trail, and is a Ramsar designated Wetland of International Importance.  Experience the sights and sounds of the awakening swamp with one of our naturalists guiding you to look for birds. Learn about the birds' life habits and the importance to these birds of the native upland and freshwater wetland plants and habitats that occur at Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary. Plus, learn what you can do in your own yard to improve habitat for birds.

Cost:    $25 per person (includes Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary boardwalk admission) for non-Corkscrew members

              $20 per person (includes Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary boardwalk admission) for National Audubon members.
