Estuaries are productive coastal habitats where fresh waters meet the sea. Just as estuaries attract wildlife, they offer prime real estate for people. No matter where you live in Tampa Bay, your actions can impact these valuable resources.

Join UF/IFAS Extension Pinellas County Sea Grant and Florida-Friendly Landscaping® Extension Agents to learn how estuaries work and what you can do at home to protect them. The workshop includes a one-hour guided canoe trip into the waters around Weedon Island for a firsthand look at the Tampa Bay Estuary.

Each participant will receive a free "Practical Guide to Estuary Friendly Living" booklet and insulated tote bag. Recommended for ages 10 and older, those under 18 must be accompanied by an adult with a ratio of 1 adult: 1 youth. Cost $10 if using county-provided canoe; free if using personal canoe or kayak.

Registration required (online, below). For more information, please contact Libby Carnahan at (727) 453-6522
