About This Activity

This month we will explore the slimy and squishy, the creepy and crawly, the tiny organisms that make their homes on docks, seawalls and even other animals! These animals are important filter feeders and super cool to explore. During this class we will wade into Sarasota Bay to catch animals while getting an up-close glimpse of these fabulous fouling friends. This class includes a water program. Students will wade into Sarasota Bay to catch and release animals. Please come prepared to get wet and be in the sun (your confirmation email will have detailed suggestions on what to wear and bring). Closed toe water shoes are required for all water programs. Registration closes two days prior to class. Please note: our Homeschool Days are extremely popular and typically fill 2-3 weeks prior to the class date. COVID-19 Mote Marine Laboratory & Aquarium adheres to CDC and State of Florida public health guidelines. For more information, visit: cdc.gov/coronavirus.
