Beach Walks & Bird Talks: Beachcombing & Birding Workshop

Expand your exploration of Sarasota’s famous beach! Join a local Parks & Rec. expert naturalist on a guided walking tour of Lido beach. Learn about the local flora, fauna, geology, and geography, as well as seasonal migrations, blooms, and natural history. A must for avid birders of all ages!

This workshop is off-site, and does not take place at Selby Gardens’ campus. Upon arrival, please meet at the South Lido Key Beach Park Bath House (2201 Benjamin Franklin Dr., Sarasota, FL  34236) around 6:50 a.m. to be checked-in for your 7:00 a.m. start time. There is ample free parking, a water fountain, and a restroom. Your instructor will be standing next to the bath house, between the restrooms and the picnic area. From there, the instructor will take you on your nature walk.
