Evening At The Sea with Dr. Heidi Geisz

Ever wonder how a hermit crab selects a shell or how a predatory snail tracks and attacks its prey? Come join Dr. Heidi Geisz for a short course on the edge of Apalachee Bay. Explore the many creatures that live at the interface of land and sea and discuss how they make a living in this highly variable environment. Be ready to get muddy, of course, and enjoy yourself being in nature.

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. After a short, guided walking tour of the Lab, we will meet some of the local marine denizens in our seawater touch-tanks. From there, we don wading shoes and walk the exposed tidal sands where an array of fascinating creatures can be seen. The evening ends in the auditorium for some Q & A, visiting and refreshments.

My wife and I took our daughter and her friend to the event. Dr. Geisz was perfect! Every bit as excited and interested in every creature we came across and clearly loved sharing her knowledge with the group. The girls had a great time learning and will remember the experience, probably, for the rest of their lives. I can't recommend it enough. Our heartfelt thanks to the Dr. Geisz and the folks at the lab for sharing with us.
