Monthly one hour programs cover a special topic on the first Saturday of each month.
March 4: Citizen Science for All- Dolly will take visitors on the trail to find and report valuable data that may help scientists understand the changes over time.
April 1: The life cycle of butterflies and their pollinating abilities will be explained by Donna during a walking tour through Camp Bayou's Butterfly Habitat, where Florida native plants are grown as adult nectar sources and larval host plants for the native butterfly population. The Habitat was created and maintained by the Eagle Audubon Society in Sun City Center, and serves as an example of how Florida native plants can easily become valuable additions to your own home landscape.

For those who are interested in helping with registered groups, Camp Bayou is looking for enthusiastic volunteers who love the outdoors and want to pass along that passion to others through hands-on activities, walks and canoe tours. Contact Jeri at 813-641-8545 or email email@example.com. We are mainly looking for folks to help teach school groups K-6 but there are other opportunities as well.
