Hi Everyone, 

MARK YOUR CALENDARS!  A new exhibit will open at Robinson Preserve on Saturday January 7, 2012. The "Artificial Coral Reef Crochet" exhibit is the work of more than 20 creative crafters who have spent a year making all sorts of amazing underwater creatures. We invite you to explore the reef on January 7 and take official "dives" of it with Dive Master Aedan. The exhibit will also feature photographs and images of reefs and reef creatures from around the world, and will showcase Manatee County's artificial reef system. 

We are celebrating this exhibit with a special "Meet the Reef" Festival on January 7 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. On this day *only* you will be able to also participate in a number of different fun coral reef themed activities. You can marvel at a multitude of sponges with Sponge Master John from Sea Grant, get your face painted for free, dance with a jelly fish and an octopus, meet a mermaid, build an edible coral reef, and discover the science of coral reefs with our very own Marine Resources Division and our partners from Coastal Planning and Engineering. We're even having special guests from Marine Tech bringing in ***underwater robots*** that you can build and drive around in the water, trying your hand at sea science. Best of all, all activities are free! 

If you'd like more information about the event please contact Melissa at 941-748-4501 ext. 4605. Otherwise we'll see you at the reef!
