Tampa Bay Watch Announces "A Day on the Bay" Ecotour Course
TIERRA VERDE- "A Day on the Bay" is an exciting new community course component of Tampa Bay Watch's expanding education programs. Tampa Bay Watch's Marine and Education Center, located on the Tampa Bay shoreline directly across from Ft. De Soto Park, provides an easy kayaking access to the bay providing participants an opportunity to learn about our beautiful yet fragile surroundings in a fun and engaging way. Ecotours will occur each Wednesday through March 26 from 11 a.m. - 3 p.m. Adult tuition for the course is $20 for Tampa Bay Watch members and $25 for non-members. Tuition for children 8-16 years old is $15, but includes a free membership to Tampa Bay Watch! There is no charge to take the course for children 5-7 years old. Please visit http://www.tampabaywatch.org to register for the course.
A Day on the Bay is designed specifically for the community: area residents, annual visitors to the Tampa Bay area, family groups and Tampa Bay Watch members. The environmental program starts with a classroom orientation of the estuary and the rest of the day is spent on the bay discovering estuarine sea critters from our on-site touch-tanks and kayaking over oyster bars, through mangrove forests and around a wildlife sanctuary. The course encompasses an overview of Tampa Bay Estuary habitats, its plant and animal life, bay impacts and restoration projects.
