An Evening on the Edge of the Sea

July 6 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Two people bend down to examine things along the ocean shore

Come join the FSU Coastal and Marine Lab for An Evening on the Edge of the Sea to learn about the wondrous sea life along our pristine shores and shallows. The evening kicks off with a brief overview of local ecology, followed by a walk into the exposed tidal flats to see an array of fascinating creatures.

Participating in field experiences is one way in which we humans connect with the natural world. By observing the intricate relationships creatures have with one another and with the habitats that are their homes, we increase our understanding, appreciation, and support of nature. Unleash your creativity by connecting with nature through field exploration, writing, or art.  It’s good for your health and well-being and it is a two way street because when people bond with the natural world through creative activities, they care more about and protect their local environment and wild places.

Edge of the Sea workshops take place at the FSU Coastal & Marine Laboratory in St. Teresa, FL. They start at 5:30 PM and end at 7:30 PM (unless otherwise indicated), taking full advantage of daylight savings time. The cost is $15 per person, paid at the event (cash or check). Class size is limited to 20 people. The minimum age is 7 years old. No upper limit at all! We do ask that children between 7-13 are accompanied by a paying adult.

What to bring: Old sneakers or other close-toed/heel shoes. No sandals. Bug Spray
