Free Refuge Programs

This year, J.N. “Ding” Darling National Wildlife Refuge adds a new Horseshoe Crabs program to its calendar of daily free tours and activities. The seasonal calendar of free programs and tours begins on Tuesday, Jan. 2, 2018, and runs through April 8.

Daily programs begin at 8:30 a.m. and include such diverse activities as Nature Photography, Beach Walk, Birds of Prey in Southwest Florida, and Indigo Trail Walk.

“We have something for visitors of all ages,” said supervisory refuge ranger Toni Westland. “The free refuge programs and tours last anywhere from a half hour to two hours.”
