Estuary-Friendly Living with Canoe Excursion
Saturday, December 14, 2013 from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM (EST)
Estuaries are productive coastal habitats where freshwaters meet the sea. Just as estuaries attract wildlife, they offer prime real estate for people. No matter where you live in Tampa Bay, your actions can impact these valuable resources. Join UF/IFAS Extension Pinellas County Sea Grant and Florida-Friendly Landscaping™ Extension Agents to learn how estuaries work and what you can do at home to protect them. The workshop includes a 1 hour guided canoe trip into the waters around Weedon Island for a firsthand look at the Tampa Bay Estuary.
Each participant will receive a FREE "Practical Guide to Estuary Friendly Living" booklet and insulated tote bag. All participants must be 10 years or older. Any participants under 18 years old must be accompanied by an adult with a ratio of 1 adult: 1 youth.
