Doc Bruce talks about the lightning whelk's life cycle during Sanibel Sea School's November Beach Walk. 

Sanibel Sea School will host free guided beach walks on February 11th and March 11th, 2017. The February walk will be called "Plants in the Sand - Beach Botany", and an educator will discuss the plants that grow on Sanibel's beaches and why they are important to our local creatures and ecosystems. The theme for the March walk will be "Beach Mysteries", during which participants will be invited to collect strange objects from the beach for Sanibel Sea School's educators to identify. 

"Our free beach walks are our way of saying thank you to our community," said Johnny Rader, a Marine Science Educator at Sanibel Sea School. "It's always an excellent opportunity to meet some of our neighbors, and to talk about the interesting and exciting wildlife we've observed on the island lately. If you're available, we hope you will join us!"

Beach Walks meet at Sanibel Sea School (455 Periwinkle Way) at 9 AM, and last approximately 2 hours. No registration is required, and walk-ins are welcome. Coffee, tea, and water will be offered before departing for the beach. Sanibel Sea School is a 501c3 nonprofit organization whose mission is to improve the ocean's future, one person at a time.
