The Celery Fields

The location of the site, the large number of diverse bird species, and its public ownership by Sarasota County make the Celery Fields an ideal location. The 300+ acre site is also the County’s primary storm water collection zone, allowing it to serve a dual purpose of public safety and recreation.
