Upcoming Seagrass Adventures at Cedar Point

Take a walk on the wet side!  Charlotte Harbor Environmental Center, Inc.
(CHEC) will be conducting a free Seagrass Adventure Wading Trips at Cedar
Point Environmental Park
on December 16, 23, January 9, 14, 22, February 6, 12,
17, March 3, 11, 27, 31 at 9 am. Additional dates will be available throughout the year.

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 mangrove-protected 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

Seagrass Adventures are made available with the support of Charlotte County Parks,
