Searching for last-minute gift ideas for the hunter, fisher, or conservationist in your life? We’ve got something for everyone on your list! The best part: purchases benefit coral reef restoration, habitat conservation for endangered species like the Florida panther, and preserving our outdoor heritage.
Keep your favorite angler protected from the sun and looking good in our Columbia fishing shirts. For the fisher who believes time spent fishing is time well spent, the lightweight, effective design is a no-brainer.
The Sharp Shooter
FWC’s Palm Beach Shooting Sports Complex opened to the public in 2020 with help from the Foundation. The complex is an excellent opportunity to sharpen hunting skills for the experienced hunter as well as teach gun safety to newbies. Take your future or experienced hunter to the rifle range, handgun range, or clay shooting for a Christmas present they aren’t soon to forget.
The Weekend Warrior
The Columbia Utilizer™ Polo is versatile enough for a day on the water and a day at the office; the perfect workwear reminder of that upcoming fishing trip.
Plastic bags and water bottles are so last year. For the green-minded individuals in your life, consider the durable and reusable insulated tumbler and grocery tote. The 20oz stainless steel insulated tumbler with screw-on lid and snap locking closure is the perfect adventure companion for hikes and everyday use, while the non-woven tote will save on plastic grocery bags with every trip.
The Manatee Enthusiast
It’s hard not to fall for the charms of Florida’s gentle giants. We’re proud to be partners with FPL and TECO who operate manatee viewing sites in West Palm Beach and Apollo Beach. Schedule a day trip and give your marine mammal fan the ultimate gift of seeing a manatee up close and personal. For best viewing results, opt for a date in winter when manatees are known to congregate in large numbers.
Who says there’s an age limit on stuffed animals? Our panther plush is the perfect gift for the young and young-at-heart. Inspire a love for the conservation of endangered species in the next generation. Proceeds support FLM research and rehabilitation centers for injured panthers.
For the friend or family member constantly identifying species on nature walks, a day trip to the Nature Coast Biological Center makes for an informative, hands-on gift. Explore the Discovery Center to view snapping turtles and spotted sea trout, or arrange for a free eco-kayak tour.
