Seagrass Exploration

May 9, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Cool off this summer and learn about the important role seagrass plays in our environment and the creatures that thrive in this dynamic habitat. We will start at the St Joseph Buffer Preserve for a quick overview, then head out to Cape San Blas. Here you can immerse yourself in the vibrant seagrass ecosystem with a guided snorkeling tour of the crystal-clear seagrass beds in St. Joseph Bay. Find out what you can do at home and on vacation to help further seagrass conservation. This adult-level class covers the basics of life in a seagrass bed, as well as the intricate ties between organisms, and important conservation and protection efforts in our area. Participants are responsible for bringing their own snorkeling gear, water bottle, towel and change of clothes.

Advance registration is required and is $25 per person. Please register at Eventbrite. For more information, contact Anita Grove at (850) 670-7708 / email.
