Stopped by this place while in Sanibel last week and what a poor excuse for a nature center/butterfly garden,being form Ohio I thought I would see all sorts of colorful plants and neat butterflies,instead I saw dead potted plants and one butterfly in what looked like a screened in patio,the whole area around the nature center looked dead,I was surprised by the lack of attention this place gets as far as upkeep...also animal waste on the boardwalk,was really bummed..glad to be home in Ohio where are nature centers rock!!

What great work they do! We came by late one afternoon, but were still able to walk out to observation tower & do some birding. So very quiet

This group gets kudos for their efforts to protect the fragile ecosystems of Sanibel and Captiva. Through their hard work and educational programs the habitat if rare and endangered species are being protected. Visit the visitors center for information and see the hands on displays that are perfect for families with children.

Took a walk on the preserve and saw birds and alligators. Education center was nice with good displays of flora and fauna. Butterfly house was neat. Staff were very friendly and informative.

This place will help you understand how Sanibel remains the sanctuary it is. You will learn and gain a new respect for the founders and supporters as well as the island
