Free Time: Guided Wildlife Tours at Pelican Island Florida

    By Kevin Mims

    If there's any two things I'm a total sucker for, it's outdoor events and free stuff. With that in mind, you can see why I'm excited to learn about these guided tours at Pelican Island National Wildlife Refuge in Vero Beach.

    Yep, these free (yes, free!) guided tours at Pelican Island Florida happen every Wednesday in November through March, excluding major holidays, of course. I'm so there.

    Binoculars, spotting scopes and field guides are all provided. All you have to do is call ahead for reservations, and you are in.

    If you've been wanting to try your hand at birding and wildlife viewing, then these trips are the best way to get started. Don't miss 'em!
