If you will be visiting Sanibel from now until June 7, you should plan that the Indigo Trail, between the fee booth and cross dike, and the Wildlife Education Boardwalk is closed to enable crushed shell resurfacing. It will reopen on Saturday, June 7, for National Trails Day.

On the good news front, a new “handicap lift” has been installed to serve those who want to visit the Visitor & Education Center and are challenged by stairs and ramps. There was a ribbon cutting recently. Guests at Sanibel’s West Wind Island Resort will find that “Ding” Darling keeps
IndigoTrail-signgetting better as a reason to be on Sanibel. These improvements excite us, as the True Sanibel experience, and the closest beach resort to the National Wildlife Refuge. We are grateful for the work of Refuge management, including Paul Tritiak, Refuge Manager, and Ding Darling Society members such as Emeritus Board Member, Marilyn Kloosterman.
