Beach University is a free, four-week series of seminars that takes place from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. every Wednesday in March at Siesta Beach pavilion.

Each week, wildlife experts and educators will discuss important enviromental topics. Presenters will answer questions after their lecture. 

"Sarasota County loves the beaches and the coastline," says County Recreation Specialist Jonathan Poyner. "Anybody who lives here should learn about the valuable resources that we have, how to take care of the them and how they work."

Presentation topics are “Shorebird Nesting and Environmental Protection,” Mote Marine Research and Sea Turtles,” “How Everyday Activities Affect Water Quality” and “Sarasota County Parks Capital Projects Update.”
