Littoral Society - Sarasota Field Trips
Spring - Summer 2013
County on the west coast of Florida boasts some of the most amazing
coastal flora, fauna, and habitat in the U.S. Our Southeast Chapter
offers a variety of ways to observe and learn about them. We offer
kayaking, guided beach walks, seining, and eco-tours at various times
throughout the year. This spring we have one last trip aboard the
carefree learner next week and a host of kayak trips to carry you
through the summer.
Eco-Tours Aboard the Carefree Learner
hands-on fun and learn up close about the critters of Sarasota Bay with
our expert naturalists and educators. Also see amazing nesting bird
life. The boat is small and provides a great experience for people of
all ages. The Carefree Learner tours are on Wednesdays at 1 to 3 pm
departing from Bayfront Park next to Le Barge, near the Ringling circle.
Members $15, Non-members $20, kids (12 and under) $10.
