Get a (Green) Life at Estuary Academy
"Greening Your Life" will be the topic of the 2011 "Estuary Academy" sponsored by the Tampa Bay Estuary Program.
The day of informative workshops and interactive learning will be held Saturday, March 26, from 9 a.m.-3:00 p.m. at the
Weedon Island Preserve Natural and Cultural History Center in St. Petersburg.
This year's Academy will present short seminars and hands-on workshops focusing on ways to create a green
lifestyle from home and garden tips to energy efficiency. Gardeners will want to attend sessions on Composting
and Vermiculture, Designing Your Florida Yard and Rain Harvesting. Green Ways to Outwit and Evict Wildlife
will be helpful to homeowners who often find uninvited guests, while an Energy Efficiency session will focus on the
many ways we can reduce our carbon footprint.
Tampa Bay Estuary Program's 20th Anniversary photo exhibit, "Tampa Bay: 20/20," will be on display
during the Estuary Academy and a short presentation "Twenty Years in Twenty Minutes" will give a brief
overview of the program's work during the last two decades.
Registration is only $10, including lunch, and is limited to 100 adults and kids older than 12. Pre-registration is required
