Guest passes to the Conservancy Nature Center for ten (10) people
Brunch at Latitude 26 at the Hyatt House for ten (10) people

Established in 1964, the Conservancy of Southwest Florida is devoted to preserving the region’s natural habitats. A great deal of their work consists of educational programs that promote environmental awareness and responsibility. Their headquarters in the heart of Naples is spread over 21 acres and includes recreational activities such as kayak and canoe rentals, boat cruises and walking trails; and educational facilities indoors include The Nature Store, The Discovery Center and The Wildlife Rehabilitation Center. The Conservancy’s work has expanded as development has become more widespread and now encompasses wildlife research, mangrove restoration, and the monitoring of invasive species.

The winning bidder’s party of ten will receive a close-up view of the Conservancy’s work. They’ll tour the Nature Center, described by the Conservancy as “the gateway to our mission.” They’ll explore the Dalton Discovery Center, which replicates the area’s ecosystems—the Everglades, mangroves, beach and Gulf of Mexico. They’ll tour the Ferguson Learning Lab, Wildlife Hospital Exhibits and Smith Preserve. They’ll also receive a boat ride with a Conservancy naturalist boat captain and enjoy brunch at the Hyatt’s Latitude 26 restaurant. Most of all, they’ll come away with an enhanced appreciation of the natural wonders surrounding us.

INSIDER’S INFO: Package is available Monday through Friday and is valid through January 31, 2021. Reservations must be made at least two (2) weeks in advance and are subject to availability and weather.
