WEDNESDAY, JULY 3

- Wildlife Walk with Rehabilitators and Staff from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Southwest Florida is filled with fascinating wildlife, and CROW provides a unique opportunity to look into wildlife rehabilitation and meet the staff responsible for their care. Wildlife walks are the best opportunity for visitors to get an in-depth look into the inner workings of our hospital and the treatment process. The program has two parts: an introductory presentation covering our medical and rehabilitation methods; and a guided tour through treatment areas of the hospital, concluding on the rehabilitation grounds. Wildlife Walks take between one and two hours; a 45-minute presentation and a 45-minute tour. The program is open to all, but it is not recommended for children under the age of 13. Cost is $25 per person. Photography opportunity available following tour with Animal Ambassador. Advanced registration required; to register, contact the Visitor Education Center at 239-472-3644 ext. 229 or reservations@crowclinic.org.

- Patient Profiles: Virginia Opossums at 11 a.m.

Virginia opossums are the only marsupial, or pouched mammal, native to the United States. They are highly adaptable animals and can live in a variety of habitats, both natural and human made. Although it may not be obvious to some people, opossums are a unique member of Florida's wildlife, playing an important role in the function of a healthy ecosystem. Adults are $12; ages 4-12 are $7. One of CROW's Animal Ambassadors will be present.

One of CROW's Animal Ambassadors will be present.

- Patient Profiles: Snakes of Southwest Florida at 11 a.m.

Florida is home to 46 species of native snakes, only six of which are venomous. Although there is a widespread fear and misunderstanding of the animal, most species are harmless to humans and form vital links in the ecosystem. Snakes are extremely valuable because they are efficient at monitoring pest populations without relying on chemical pesticides which can degrade the environment and harm other animal species. Adults are $12; ages 4-12 are $7. One of CROW's Animal Ambassadors will be present.
