Just a reminder: it's a busy week! Next week brings National Estuarine Day, but one small step at a time, right?
9/15 (7-8 pm): Fossils on Florida's Beaches
Presented by Jake Fitzroy, GTM NERR's interpretative ranger, this is a GREAT chance to find out about collecting fossils on the beach. (Did you know those shark teeth you've been collecting are hundreds of thousands - maybe even millions - of year old?) You're even invited to bring that bucket of stuff you've been collecting - Jake will help you identify it. Don't miss it - I've been and it's FUN. Location: Nocatee Welcome Center. It's free but please RSVP to Rachel Robertson at 904.924.6858.
9/17 (8 am - 11 am): International Coastal Cleanup Day
Since 1986 over 6 MILLION volunteers in 127 countries have taken part in this event, removing trash and recording invaluable data. Check in at the GTM NERR Education Center OR our Marineland location between 8 and 9 am. More info is at www.gtmnerr.org, or 904.823.4500. So, can you make a difference? You can. Yep. Really.
