Join us for a variety of special events developed to deliver positive, rewarding experiences that increase awareness and understanding of the value of coastal ecosystems. Signature events include National Estuaries Day, which is a celebration of estuaries for the entire family! This annual day of fun takes place on the last Saturday in September. The Southwest Florida Nature Festival is a great way to learn about the wildlife, and wild places, this area has to offer. And there's no better way to show your support than participating in the Batfish Bash For the Bay, the Friends of Rookery Bay's annual fundraiser.
The learning at Rookery Bay doesn’t stop just because school is out- be sure to visit the Environmental Learning Center in the summer for Kids FREE Fridays, where kids, parents, and grandparents can enjoy a day of fun!
