Ecotours Offers ‘Do One Thing for Wildlife’ Tours

During the month of July, Ecotours is offering special discounted kayak and snorkel tours of the mangrove lagoon on Saturday afternoons. This tour is offered as part of the Division of Fish and Wildlife’s “Do One Thing for Wildlife.” The cost is $20 per person, and kids under 12 are free. The first one will run from 1-3:30 pm., Saturday, July 11. Reservations can be made through Ecotours at 779-2155 (quote: community outreach).
This is an opportunity to participate in one of the user groups of STEER and to get a close look at some of the creatures and habitats that the management plan is trying to protect. Even for those who already spend a lot of time in the reserve, this tour offers a different perspective of the various uses of the reserve.
For more information on this program, e-mail Renata Platenberg at vi.wildlife@gmail.com.
