Weekly Agendas

Mangrove Mud Week

May 29 – June 2, 2017

There are 4 types of mangroves on Sanibel and we’re going to learn all about them. Which means we are going to muck out! We’ll go on mangrove mud walks and collect their propagules (you’ll find out what that is!) We’ll see how mangroves are the secret safe spot for so many fish and creatures by snorkeling in and looking between their prop roots. We’ll have a mangrove scavenger hunt and make a map of the different mangroves on Sanibel. Mangroves feel like pirate-y, hidden, swampy places, so you’re gonna love exploring their secrets.

Watch Me Swim, Crab Week

June 5 – 9, 2017

Swimming crabs are kind of funny. They look like they’re doing something they haven’t done very often. But actually they have their own little special appendages for this called swimmerets. We’re going to paddle our own swimmerets when we learn about the crazy swimming style of these crabs. We’re also going to have a molting race where we have to change our shell because that’s the way crabs grow! We’ll see if we can catch some crabs in crab traps this week and look for crab larvae in a plankton tow. Come along and be crabby with us!

Loggerhead Week

July 31 – August 4, 2017

The Loggerhead Sea Turtle is a big animal with crushing jaws and a sweet face. We’re going to learn about this endangered species that comes out of the ocean to dig nests on Sanibel. We’ll learn about where it nests on the island. We’ll study the crushing force of its jaws by seeing how much force it takes to crush different things. We’ll learn how to protect this beautiful creature from threats by making a lifecycle obstacle course and see how our “turtle” makes it through. Come be a big headed turtle with us.
