38th Taste of the Islands


Sunday, November 10, 2019 at Sanibel Community Park

Join the Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife (CROW) for a day of great friends, groovy tunes and of course, delicious food from your favorite island restaurants! Gates open at 12:00 p.m. and close at 5 p.m. The event features live music by Private Stock and showcases Sanibel and Captiva Islands’ vibrant and diverse restaurant community. 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. Visitors traveling over the Sanibel Causeway can redeem their toll receipt at any CROW Bucks station to receive $2 in CROW Bucks!

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.

For more information about Taste, sponsorships, or to become a participating restaurant, please contact Mary C. Schoeffel, Development Director at (239) 472-3644 #232 or mschoeffel@crowclinic.org
