St. George Island, FL

On this trip we will learn to fish and how to throw a cast net while we explore some of Florida's most pristine estuary habitats in Apalachicola Bay. This year we have partnered with the State of Florida and the FWCC sea turtle monitoring program. With this partnership, we will be able to walk protected beaches at sunrise, stay up late (with proper lighting), and, with luck, will get to experience firsthand some of Florida's nesting sea turtles. We will also learn more about the history of Florida as we tour Apalachicola, which was once one of the largest cities in the state and who was once the nation's top producer of oysters.

We will explore barrier island habitats at St. Vincent Island as we walk through the diverse ecosystems and experience a progression of these systems as we hike from the shoreline through the dune systems to the bay. Daytime activities feature kayaking, fishing, exploring oyster reefs, and beach time. Nighttime activities are highlighted by a night walk on the beach featuring a bioluminescence experience.

Location: St. George Island, FL
Dates: July 26 - 30, 2021
