Free Ding Darling Tours

Provided to the

J.N. “Ding” Darling National Wildlife Refuge has announced plans to relaunch its free tours program this summer from June 20 through Aug. 7. Staff will continue to limit the outdoor tours to 10 people or fewer.

There’s no set schedule for the tours, so those interested should monitor the page, where participants must pre-register free-of-charge. Tours include a children’s program, art activities, a Mindfulness Walk at Bailey Tract, and a Beach Walk.

“We are excited to be able to welcome visitors to our free educational tours again this summer,” said supervisory refuge ranger Toni Westland. “Watch our Eventbrite site for possible additions as the summer progresses.”

Free educational tours are made possible through support from the “Ding” Darling Wildlife Society-Friends of the Refuge (DDWS). For more information, visit or call 239-472-1100 ext. 221.F
