The Wiggins Pass Nature Fest is an annual full day event sponsored by the park with help from the Friends. Held in the fall, the Nature Fest offers opportunities for all ages to learn about the plants and wildlife of southwest Florida while participating in various programs, activities, and crafts in beautiful picnic area 3. Programs include story time and ranger-led programs. Activities include shell seeking, face painting, and paddle boarding. Crafts incorporate native materials such as shells, leaves, and pine cones which are found in the park and surrounding areas. In addition, many local environmental organizations display exhibits that demonstrate the importance of wildlife and conservation.
