 Celery Fields

6893 Palmer Blvd., Sarasota, FL
celery fields trail 
The location of the site and the large number of diverse bird species make the Celery Fields an ideal location for wildlife watching and passive recreational use. The Celery Fields is on the Great Florida Birding Trail and is a popular destination for Sarasota Audubon field trips and outings.
The more than 300 acres is also Sarasota County’s primary storm water collection zone, allowing it to serve a dual purpose of public safety and recreation.
Wetlands restoration of 100 acres is now complete at the Celery Fields. More than 20,000 aquatic plants and trees have been planted, and two boardwalks have been installed. This project will add additional walking and biking trails, fishing, kayaking, and wildlife viewing for the entire community.
