A couple of weekends ago I was sent to Naples (aka, Beverly Hills), Florida for a work-related board meeting and fundraiser. It was a little chilly (by Floridian standards), but the consignment shopping was good, the party was a success and the highlight was a private (for TILT staff and board) guided tour of the Audubon’s Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary:
Forgive the blurriness of some of the photos…I had woken up at 3:30pm that morning to catch an early flight and was operating on zero caffeine.ww.f The Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary was wonderful – the staff and docents were extremely knowledgeable and friendly, and the dinner (and conversation) we shared with them in the visitor’s center after-hours was delicious! Our short tour of the sanctuary was only a small section of this enormous preserve – I highly recommend anyone visiting Naples to check it out (along with all the other preserves, zoos, botanic gardens and hikes in the area…hopefully I’ll have more free time next year!).
