Join us as we embark on a fascinating excursion through one of Southwest Florida’s most diverse natural ecosystems. The Six Mile Cypress Slough Preserve will be hosting the Dubin Center at their interactive Interpretive Center. Here we will hear a lecture from an expert in Southwest Florida’s environment regarding how the many animals in this area adapted to live and thrive in this climate. Later, enjoy creating a simple art project to take home with you. After the lecture, participants are welcome to o the Dubin Center staff and volunteers on a walk around the lower loop of the outdoor boardwalk. Here we may see many different animals such as alligators. otters, turtles, and a vast variety of birds. This walk is mostly shaded and is roughly ¾ of a mile in length.
Admission to the Six Mile Cypress Slough Lecture is $1.00 per person, with an additional $1.00 for parking per hour, per vehicle. There is no additional charge for the walk around the boardwalk loop. Please RSVP as soon as possible by calling the Dubin Center at 239-437-3007.
*If you plan to join us on the walk, please bring your own supply of water, sunscreen, and insect repellant.
