Clam Pass County Park offers a beautiful beach and a scenic boardwalk through a unique habitat. Learn about the special trees that dominate in this unusual environment and why they are important to all of us. See beautiful shore birds and maybe a surprise visitor or two, such as the not-to-be-forgotten pileated woodpecker. Learn about native shells and see other treasures, such as shark’s teeth, the Gulf may have delivered to the shore.

Endorsement by Naples Mayor John Sorey:

Meet your guide at the tram stop at the end of the Clam Pass parking lot Monday through Saturday at 9 a.m. Hat, water, and sunscreen are advised. Walks are approximately 2 hours.

Parking is free with beach sticker or subject to county fee for an all-day parking pass. Entrance to park is adjacent to the Naples Grande Beach Resort at the end of Seagate Drive.

Free nature walks are part of the conservancy’s off-site programs. They are designed to give residents and visitors a greater understanding of the natural treasures that surround us. Additional walk locations will begin in January. See a full schedule online www.conservancy.org/offsite/nature-walks.
