SWAMP Celebration for the Parks8th Annual / Big Cypress Gallery Our annual two-day swamp walk fundraiser is back once again! This exclusive event gives supporters of The Alliance for Florida’s National Parks an opportunity to explore the private property surrounding Clyde Butcher’s Big Cypress Gallery within Big Cypress National Preserve. These adventurous outings are in support of Big Cypress’s youth environmental education program, which serves every 6th-grade student in Collier County each year. With support from The Alliance, around 3,000 kids are able to experience the natural and wild wonders of Southwest Florida through this program. During the Swamp Celebration, swamp walks will take place on Saturday, October 23, and Sunday, October 24, from 8 am – 3 pm each day. Each walk will be spaced 30 minutes apart and will be limited to 10 adults and up to five children per walk. Tickets are $75 per adult and $25 per child 12 and under. The first 25 adult tickets purchased can receive the $50 early bird ticket price using code SWAMP2021. This event sells out every year, so get your tickets early! Click HERE to purchase. Questions?
