Evening At The Edge of The Sea - FSUCML Workshop

Ever wonder how a hermit crab selects a shell or how a predatory snail tracks and attacks its prey? Come join Katrina Bayliss, FSUCML Marine Technician for a short course on the edge of Apalachee Bay. This course is designed to educate and inspire you through a hands-on experience with the strange and wonderful sea life along our pristine shores and shallows. We begin with a brief, illustrated overview of the general ecology of this part of the Gulf of Mexico, spotlighting its more intriguing habitats and organisms. Then donning wading shoes, we have a guided tour of the exposed tidal sands to explore the many creatures that live at the interface of land and sea. Be ready to get muddy, of course, and enjoy yourself being in nature.

Instructor Bio: Katrina received her B.S. Degree in Marine Biology from the Florida Institute of Technology in 2013. Before joining the staff of FSUCML, she worked for 3-1/2 years as a benthic ecology research tech at the Smithsonian Marine Station in Ft. Pierce, Florida.
