Upcoming Bird Patrol Tours

Lee County Bird Patrol volunteers invite you to join them as they lead birding tours of the parks and Conservation 20/20 sites they monitor for Lee County. Bring your binoculars and visit these sites with people who know them best. All our tours are FREE of charge, although there may be a parking fee. Please note that the tours at Caloosahatchee Creeks, Prairie Pines, and Pine Island Flatwoods are nature tours that focus more on habitat.
