Audubon’s Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary is hosting a Summer Solstice Evening on June 21. Visitors are invited to stroll the boardwalk, talk to our Boardwalk Naturalists and get a fascinating glimpse of life in the swamp as the sun is setting.
Come and explore the 2.25 mile-boardwalk that serves as the gateway to old Florida wilderness as it meanders through pine flatwood, wet prairie, marshes, and the largest old-growth bald cypress forest in North America. The Sanctuary is also home to hundreds of alligators, otters, white-tailed deer, red-bellied turtles, and a wide variety of wading birds, songbirds, and raptors.
Admission will begin at 5 p.m., and the boardwalk will close at 8:30 p.m. Last admission is at 7 p.m. Sunset that night will be at 8:21 p.m. Please Note: that a Sanctuary team member will clear the boardwalk to ensure everyone has safely exited by 8:30 p.m.
The Blair Center and Nature Store will be open from 5 – 8:45 p.m. this night.
After the boardwalk, have a peek inside the Blair Audubon Center Nature Store to buy a souvenir or grab a snack and beverage. Preview the boardwalk by downloading the Boardwalk Map (click here for PDF version). Families are also encouraged to participate in our scavenger hunt (download a copy here).
