“Tampa Bay Watch’s large-scale environmental education program, Estuary EDventures, strives to empower Tampa Bay area students to act as stewards of the Tampa Bay estuary by providing field experiences that combine classroom resources with hands-on field experiences at the Tampa Bay Watch Marine Education Center in Tierra Verde. Since the inception of the Estuary EDventures in 2007, over 35,000 students and teachers from over 150 schools have participated in field trips. Estuary EDventures teaches about the importance of the Tampa Bay estuary in daily life, impacts on the estuary, as well as what can be done to restore the health of our local estuary.”

– Peter Clark, President of Tampa Bay Watch
