Eco Connections

March 8 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm


Tampa Bay gives us so many opportunities to enjoy life by the water. Giving back to the bay is a great way to feel connected to our natural surroundings while ensuring that future generations can also enjoy them. Participants in this session will spend part of the day with members of Tampa Bay Watch’s very own restoration team, who will lead a field trip to Lassing Park. We’ll visit a recent Living Shoreline installation and have the option to get our feet wet while hearing about why and how these volunteer-supported projects benefit humans, our local ecosystem, and the global ocean.
You’ll discover what happens behind the scenes to plan, coordinate, and fund a Living Shoreline, find out why our water quality depends on healthy habitats, and build a vertical oyster garden to take home or donate for installation on a local dock. This is an active program, so wear comfortable clothing and prepare to get your shoes muddy, if you’d like!

This activity requires a signed waiver in order to participate.

Locations will change each week:
Week 1 – Invasion in the Bay – TBW Discovery Center
Week 2 – Water Quality, Challenges and Solutions – TBW Eco-Vessel
Week 3 – Giving Back to the Bay – TBW Discovery Center
