DETAILS: https://www.sciencepartners.net/manatee-snorkel-encounter.html

Join Bill and Merilee Clifton – creationists, authors, Florida Master Naturalists, and science educators –
as we focus on “Florida’s Gentle Giant” – the West Indian Manatee. Our destination is Citrus County, The Nature Coast. In the morning, outfitted with wetsuits, masks, snorkels, and fins, we will take a pontoon boat ride in search of manatees. When we find them, we’ll join them in the crystal clear, spring-fed waters – the only place in Florida where it is  legal to swim with manatees! During our manatee encounter, we’ll observe these sociable, endangered mammals “up close and personal.” We’ll study them in their natural habitat and discover what they look like, how they breathe, what they eat, and more! We’ll also learn what threatens their survival and how we can help.
