SCCF provides miles and miles of trails that are clean, well-maintained, and safe throughout the islands of Sanibel and Captiva. I am so impressed by this foundation and the work they do.

We saw the sign for the homestead and stopped to see what it was. We didn't actually look at the homestead, though, as we discovered the new Shipley trail. It joins with the Pond Apple Trail, which I assume already existed, but we didn't know...More

Of course, all visitors to Sanibel should spend lots of time in Ding Darling, but don't neglect the 'other side' of Sanibel ecology/wildlife. In addition to raising funds to protect various portions of the inland landscape, the Conservation Foundation maintains a highly informative nature center...More

Great place for a walk, to see the wildlife and the different trees and fauna. The park was well laid out and had lots of informative plaques. The price was free, which helps out, because Sanibel is a little expensive.

Went for a walk there. Some trails were closed. Climbed the observation tower. What a view. Didn't see much as we walked, animals hid. Good place to visit.
