Apr. 5 (Wed) - Rookery Islands Boat Trip

Join us on a Venice Area Audubon Society fundraiser cruise to the rookery islands in Sarasota's Roberts Bay. The cruise on the  Carefree Learner boat will last about 2 hours. We will see three islands covered with nesting Brown Pelicans, herons, egrets and cormorants. In the past, we were thrilled to also see nesting Roseate Spoonbills and Reddish Egrets.  This has been a popular trip in the past.

The cruise is scheduled for April 5, 2023 from 1 to 3 PM. The number of passengers is limited to 20 participants. The cost of the cruise is $30 per person. Reservations are required. Acceptance of reservations begins on January 16th.

Please contact Bill Fairbank at email for the reservation and payment instructions. Please include in your email the number of passengers (maximum 4) you wish to include. No reservation is confirmed until payment is received.
