In honor of the Labor Day weekend, the Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife’s AWC Visitor Education Center on Sanibel will be open on Aug. 31 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Daily presentations will be offered at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. for visitors to engage with a staff member or student while learning more about the patients admitted to CROW’s wildlife hospital. Lasting about 45 minutes, the topics will include “Birds of Prey” at 11 a.m. and “Snakes of Southwest Florida” at 2 p.m.
The presentations are included with general admission.
“Wildlife Walk” guided hospital tours will be offered after the presentations.
The tours take visitors behind-the-scenes for a look at the CROW staff in action. They focus on the rehabilitation process from admission to release, along with providing information about CROW’s history and student programs. Due to limited space, advanced registration is required to participate.
The AWC Visitor Education Center will be closed on Sept. 2 for Labor Day and will remain closed throughout the following week to allow for fall cleaning. The center will reopen on Sept. 9.
General admission is $12 for adults and $7 for ages 4-12; ages 3 and under are free.
The Wildlife Walk tours are $25 per person and include admission to the center.
