Event description

Description

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 two-hour, guided canoe trip into the waters around Weedon Island for a firsthand look at the Tampa Bay Estuary.

We will provide canoes, live vests and whistles. 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. Weather can be variable. You will recieve an email prior to the event with recommendations for personal gear including reusable water bottle, closed-toed wading shoes and sun/weather protection.

New or renewed Friends of Weedon Island (FOWI) members may participate in this paddle at a reduced fee. FOWI is a 501(c)3 that supports education and conservation at Weedon Island Preserve. Learn more at https://friendsofweedonisland.org/.
