The Sarasota Bay Estuary Program (SBEP) and Around the Bend Nature Tours are hosting a National Estuaries Day celebration Sept. 24 at Ken Thompson Park near Mote Marine Laboratory.
The free event will present fun learning activities and exhibits for adults and children of all ages from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Children can compete for prizes by presenting their own exhibit or activity celebrating the importance of estuaries. Around the Bend Nature Tours will provide dip nets to give visitors an up close encounter with aquatic life.
For more information and to find out how to participate, contact Sara Kane, the city’s public outreach coordinator, at 955-8085.
