Please mark your calendars to join us on Thursday, January 25th, as we hold our Annual Meeting and kickoff the 2024 Lemon Bay Coastal Seminar Series with a presentation by Tonya Wiley, from Havenworth Coastal Conservation, on “The Endangered Sawfish of Florida: Past, Present, and Future”.
The evening will begin at 5:00 p.m. with refreshments and opportunities to talk with volunteers from LBC about Vertical Oyster Gardens and our many other environmental initiatives. Students from the Lemon Bay High School marine science conservation club will also be on hand, talking about their programs and scheduling sign-ups for special tour dates to visit the LBHS Marine Science Lab.
The business meeting will start at 5:30 p.m., to be followed by our guest speaker and by the auction of the LBC Traveling Heron! (Please see the separate article later in this email with more details about how you can bid to “host the heron”, even if you can’t make the meeting.)
The meeting will be held at the Cape Haze Community Center located at 180 Spyglass Alley, Placida, FL 33946, at the intersection of Spyglass Alley and Spaniards Road. Parking is available on both streets. To reach the Community Center from Placida Road (Hwy. 775), turn west onto Cape Haze Drive. At the traffic circle, take the first right (heading north) onto Spaniards Rd. The Community Center will be just ahead on your left.
Coastal Seminar Series additional planning note: LBC member Rob Robbins, a marine biologist, has scheduled three additional outstanding speakers on interesting and important topics related to our beautiful, but fragile, local ecosystems.
