The Friends of Tigertail Beach Inc., is a 501-c3 nonprofit organization dedicated to the stewardship of this unique and rich natural area that is Tigertail Beach and Sand Dollar Spit. This group of dedicated volunteers serves our community through educational outreach programs throughout the year, such as field trips, nature and birding walks and group workshops.

During season Friends of Tigertail welcomes the public to our free programs. These programs start at 7:00 p.m. at the United Church of Marco, 320 North Barfield Drive. No reservations required. Our next two programs are:
