Many are unaware of just how many exotic, invasive species live here in southwest Florida. Step inside the Conservancy’s Hall of Invasive Species to see animals such as the Burmese python, lionfish, and red-eared slider. Learn how these species found their way into our ecosystem. Discover how these animals are able to survive so well in our environment, and these invaders mean trouble for Southwest Florida’s native animals.
Bring your little ones to come and play, learn, and explore in the Little Explorer Play Zone! Kids can discover the incredible animals of southwest Florida as they crawl through a gopher tortoise burrow, walk into a mangrove forest, and climb up a giant bald eagle nest. Enjoy crafts and multi-sensory interactive activities that kids are sure to love!
All aboard from the Allyn Family Dock! Take a leisurely, informative and fun 45-minute cruise along the beautiful Gordon River.
Every day, Conservancy-trained naturalists or volunteers lead daily programs for Nature Center guests.
The trails may be short, but the bird viewing is terrific! Take a self-guided nature walk along the DeLong Mangrove Trail, the Lagoon Trail and the Hammock Trail.
