Exploring Nature: Evening at the Edge of the Sea


 6 pm- 9 pm

Registration closes one week before the class, or until full

Price: $ 15 per person

Ever wonder how a hermit crab selects a shell or how a predatory snail tracks and attacks it prey?  Come join Dr. Heidi Geisz for a short course on the edge of Apalachee Bay.  Explore the many creatures that live at the interface of land and sea and discuss how they make a living in this highly variable environment.  Be ready to get muddy, of course, and enjoy yourself being in nature.

This course is designed to educate and inspire you through a hands-on experience with the strange and wonderful sea life along our pristine shores and shallows.  We begin with a brief, illustrated overview of the general ecology of this part of the Gulf of Mexico, spotlighting its more intriguing habitats and organisms.  After a short, guided walking tour of the Lab, we will meet some of the local marine denizens in our seawater touch-tanks.  From there, we don wading shoes and walk the exposed tidal sands where an array of fascinating creatures can be seen.  The evening ends in the auditorium for some Q & A, visiting and refreshments.

Class limit:  12 people.   Minimum age: 9 years

Children 9-13 years old must be accompanied by a paying adult.

What to bring:  old sneakers or similar close-toed shoes. No sandals  or other open-toed shoes.  

Not able to attend on this date?  Workshop is offered again on September 8th & September 22nd.
