The 37th Taste of the Islands on Sanibel takes place at the Sanibel Community Park on November 11, 2018 from 12:30 – 5:00 p.m. This annual Island tradition features live music and Sanibel and Captiva Islands’ local restaurants. Returning this year, event attendees can get a ‘taste’ of CROW and meet the Animal Ambassadors in the Sanibel Community House.
Admission to Taste of the Islands is $7 and children younger than 12 years of age are free. Guests purchase CROW Bucks to get their “tastes” from participating restaurants. Item prices range from one to six CROW Bucks. Admissions and CROW Bucks are available for purchase at the event and in advance through CROW’s website and can be picked up at the Will Call booth at Taste of the Islands.
Proceeds from Taste of the Islands ensure CROW’s continued success providing the highest quality care and treatment of injured, ill and orphaned wildlife through state-of-the-art veterinary care. Funds also support public educational exhibits at the Visitor Education Center. Healthy wildlife means a healthy environment for all of us.
