Englewood Beach Waterfest is expanding their focus this year on the environment and conservation. The new Family Conservation Center, sponsored by the Ron & Matt Smith Agency of State Farm Insurance (long-time LBC members), will host events and activities for kids and adults in a large tent area at Englewood Beach on November 17 & 18. The idea is that visitors to the power boat races scheduled that weekend will stop by the conservation area to cool off and learn more about our environment.
Mote Marine is scheduled to bring six different hands-on exhibits. LBC is planing to join other environmental exhibitors, including the Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission, the Peace River Wildlife Center, and the Lemon Bay High School Aquaculture Club. The Shark Brothers are scheduled to visit on Saturday and there will be a variety of games for children. The conservation area will be open 10-4 both days.
