A wonderful little native preserve, with a walk which takes you past tidal lagoons, by mangroves and other native plants, to an overlook on Sarasota Bay. A great place to see birds. There are always ospreys--which have several nests in the preserve--and wading birds as well. On cold, windy winter days in particular, depending on the tide, the lagoons fill with birds seeking shelter, including great egrets, great blue herons, ibises, wood storks, snowy egrets, little blue herons, and the occasional reddish egret or roseate spoonbill. Kudos to Longboat Key for preserving this little slice of old Florida in its natural state, and making it available to everyone.
