The Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation will host an informational program on shorebirds.

SCCF biologists will present "Shorebirds of Sanibel and Captiva" on May 24 from 2 to 3 p.m. in the Nature Center, at 3333 Sanibel Captiva Road, Sanibel.

In the spring and summer, residents and visitors will notice areas of Sanibel and Captiva's beaches roped off to protect nesting shorebirds, as well as nesting sea turtles. For the program, learn about the shorebird species that nest on the beach, including snowy plovers, least terns and wilson's plovers.

Also, learn how to safely share the beach and help to protect them.
