The evening kicks off with a brief overview of local ecology, followed by a short tour of the Lab and then walk the exposed tidal flats to see an array of fascinating creatures. The workshops, scheduled for July 13, 27, and August 10, 24 take place at the FSU Coastal & Marine Laboratory east of Carrabelle from 4:30 PM and end at 7:30 PM. The evening kicks off with a brief overview of local ecology, followed by a short tour of the Lab, when you will meet some of the local marine citizens in our seawater touch-tanks.
