The Sanibel Captiva Trust Company is serving as co-sponsor of SCCF’s magazine, Connecting You to Nature, now in its third issue.  Al Hanser, Founder and Chairman of The Trust Company said, “We admired SCCF’s ingenuity in developing the magazine during the height of COVID in 2020-2021 and feel the content of the publication is of utmost importance to anyone who lives on or frequents our islands and their delicate ecosystem. Let me also mention that we are delighted that James Evans will be CEO at SCCF and anticipate he and his team will continue to elevate this worthy organization.”


Connecting You to Nature features four pillars of the organization’s work in protecting and caring for land, water and wildlife.  “Last year’s launch was enthusiastically received by supporters of the Sanibel Captiva Conservation Foundation,” said CEO-Elect James Evans, “so we are building on its success by spreading it even further, and we thank The Trust Company as well as co-sponsor Doc Ford’s Rum Bar & Grille for once again supporting this important vehicle of conservation education on the islands”


The magazine is distributed to all SCCF members, Sanibel and Captiva postal customers, county and state officials, and leaders at the South Florida Water Management District.


The magazine’s key mission is to connect each of us to our roles in nature through:


  • Water Quality Research
  • Policy and Advocacy
  • Sea Turtles and Shorebirds
  • Environmental Education
  • Land and Wildlife


Please share the digital version of the magazine with northern family members, friends, and neighbors who have come to visit you in this island paradise and who also believe in the importance of conserving and protecting our precious environmental resources.


The  Sanibel Captiva Trust Company and Doc Ford’s Rum Bar & Grille are proud to make this third issue possible!
