Welcome back to the nest celebration



It’s that time of year again when many of our dearly missed friends and neighbors who are part time residents return to their “in season” homes on Marco. It is also the beginning of the bald eagle nesting season. The Marco Eagle Sanctuary eagles, named Paleo and Calusa by Tommy Barfield Elementary students, were recently observed in their nest tree after inhabiting other sanctuary trees throughout the summer.

The Marco Eagle Sanctuary Foundation (MESF) is hosting a “Welcome Back to the Nest” celebration at the Snook Inn on Friday, ll/ll/ll, from 4 to 7 PM. A $25 ticket includes food, choice of wine, beer or soda and an opportunity to win great door prizes. There will be entertainment, a 50-50 raffle drawing and cocktails available for purchase at Happy Hour prices.

Limited tickets are available for purchase at the Veteran’s Park Farmer’s Market on November 2 and 9, the Snook Inn until November 8, or by mailing your order with a check made payable to MESF, P.O. Box 983, Marco Island, FL, 34146. Mail order tickets must be received by November 8 and may be obtained at the “will call” table at the event. Additional information may be obtained by calling 239 394-9285 or visiting the website at MESF is a 100% volunteer organization.

Come celebrate our national symbol, the American Bald Eagle on Veteran’s Day at the Snook Inn.
