Taste and Crawl for CROW

The Taste of the Islands event was created to raise funds for a cause near and dear to the hearts of residents and visitors who love wildlife! The Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife – affectionately known as CROW – is located on Sanibel Island, Florida. This teaching hospital and visitor education center is dedicated to saving wildlife through state-of-the-art veterinary care, research, education and conservation medicine.

Whatever we can do to save wildlife is worth doing – and we love doing it together as a community! If it means having a fabulous time while tasting great food, crawling across beautiful Sanibel and Captiva Islands with friends, and CROW-ing about our cause, all the better!

Got questions about Taste of the Islands, individual CROW Crawl events, or other ways to support CROW? We’re happy to dish out the answers!
Taste of the Islands 2022 will no longer occur due to the impacts of Hurricane Ian on our beautiful Sanibel and Captiva Islands. So many of our supporting restaurants and sponsors were devastated by Ian’s wrath. Please consider supporting CROW and our restaurant partners and their staff during this difficult time. Our islands are strong and we know we will be back for Taste in 2023!
