On Friday, the weather forecast for our open house on Saturday, January 24, 2015 included an 80% rain chance. Then, many of us were awakened overnight by driving rain and thunder. Thankfully, all the rain moved thru during the night and we had a fun day for our annual Open House event at Wildflower Preserve.
The forecast and early morning conditions kept some potential attendees away, but we had a steady stream of visitors who exnjoyed the Mote Marine Touch Tank and Mobile Exhibit, listened to presentations by local environmental organizations, explored the information booths, and toured various parts of the preserve with our outstanding volunteer naturalist guides.
Thank you to Mote Marine, the Greater Charlotte Harbor Sierra Club, Peace River Audubon, the Coastal Wildlife Club, the Men’s Garden Club of Englewood, the Charlotte Harbor Environmental Center/Cedar Point, the Mangrove Chapter of the Florida Native Plant Society, and the Charlotte Harbor National Estuary Program for joining us for this fun and educational day!
And, thank you to all our great Lemon Bay Conservancy volunteers, who helped organize and publicize the day!
