Registration is closed

Harns Marsh is an outstanding location near Fort Myers for seeing wading birds, waterfowl, and other birds. Due to a population of Apple Snails, Harns Marsh is one of the only places that the threatened Snail Kite can be seen outside of the Everglades.  The trip will involve about 2 to 3 miles walking along dirt roads.

A  bonus visit will be made to Manatee Park to view the Manatees.

($2/hr. parking fee)
