Come join us for An Evening at the Edge of the Sea to learn about the wondrous sea life along our pristine shores and shallows. The evening kicks off with a brief overview of local ecology, followed by a short tour of the Lab, when you will meet some of the local marine citizens in our seawater touch-tanks. We then walk the exposed tidal flats to see an array of fascinating creatures. The evening ends in the auditorium for some Q & A.
Edge of the Sea workshops take place at the FSU Coastal & Marine Laboratory in St. Teresa, FL. They start at 4:30 PM and end at 7:30 PM (unless otherwise indicated), taking full advantage of daylight savings time. The cost is $15 per person. Class size is limited to 20 people. The minimum age is 7 years old. No upper limit at all! We do ask that all 7-13 year olds are accompanied by a paying adult.

Knowledgeable staff, good presentation. Impressive lab.
I thoroughly enjoyed the Edge of the Sea Workshop. The indoor lecture was very informative and the netting of various seagrass beasties was great fun! We caught crabs, shrimp, and various small fish species, but the highlight was capturing and releasing a beautiful two-inch Spanish Mackerel! Did I mention that we caught live baby Horseshoe Crabs. I think the best part of the catch was watching the wonderment and excitement in the younger children's faces! Great show. Highly recommended!
