After an introductory program on aquatic environments, participants will walk a short distance to Lemon Bay, where, using dip nets and hand viewers, they will wade into the shallow waters in search of the plants and animals that reside there. This exciting hands-on activity is both educational and fun for people of all ages.
Participation is limited; therefore, pre-registration is necessary for this free program. All children must be accompanied by an adult. For further information and/or to register, call Cedar Point Park at (941) 475-0769.

Seagrass Adventures are made available with funding support from the Mosaic Company Foundation in cooperation with Charlotte County Parks, Recreation and Cultural Resources and are conducted by the Charlotte Harbor Environmental Center (CHEC).
