A day to play

Seagrasses are underwater plants that provide homes to many different types of marine life. To learn more about seagrasses, marine creatures that live in seagrasses and ways to protect them, come to the 18th annual Seagrass Awareness Celebration Saturday, March 24, from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. at Shoreline Park South in Gulf Breeze.

This is a free family event that will include opportunities to enjoy live marine life in touch tanks and an “eat a seagrass bed.” Those attending can also make a shark tooth necklace; take part in seining, games and fishing; view marine creatures and marine debris; participate in arts and crafts; enjoy delicious food; take time to study a variety of displays; learn about boating and water safety; explore kayaking; and check out more opportunities for fun.

Make plans now to attend this exciting day full of activities. Bring family and friends and be sure and come prepared with water, sunscreen, hats, water shoes and lawn chairs.

In addition, the City of Gulf Breeze will be hosting Spring Fest and the Gulf Breeze Rotary Club will sponsor the annual Gumbo Cook-off at the Gulf Breeze Recreation Center. There will be lots of fun for the whole family on March 24.
