CORTEZ – Help celebrate National Estuaries Day at the Florida Maritime Museum. National Estuaries Day promotes public awareness, the importance of estuaries and the need to protect them. Sarasota Bay Estuary Program is recruiting Bay Guardian volunteers for a planting on September 27. Partners for this event include the Florida Maritime Museum and Around the Bend Nature Tours.

The planting will take place at the Florida Maritime Museum in Cortez. This project is being funded by the SBEP Bay Partners Grant Program. We will be planting Florida native plants in the shallow water around their pond and creating a butterfly garden. In order to participate you MUST wear appropriate footwear - closed toed shoes are required.
