A series of classes about rivers at Sanibel Sea School will look at how these bodies of water shape our world. 

Sanibel Sea School’s series of Winter Workshops for adults continues in February with Rivers: The Great Connectors. Led by the organization’s executive director, marine biologist Dr. Bruce Neill, the classroom-based, four-part course will examine how rivers near and far connect and shape ecosystems and human communities.  

“Rivers form the connection between so many things in our world,” said Neill. “They connect lakes to oceans, people to water, and inland habitats to coastal communities. It is fascinating to think about the biological, social, and political impacts they have had in Florida and around the world.” 

Session topics will include how rivers evolve over time and geography, how climate affects river ecosystems, how humans are changing rivers, and the important role that rivers have played in civilization throughout history. 

Sessions will be held 2/21, 2/28, 3/7, and 3/14 from 9 AM – 12 PM at Sanibel Sea School’s Flagship Campus (455 Periwinkle Way). The cost is $75 per session. Students are invited to sign up for individual topics, or to register for the entire series. To learn more, visit sanibelseaschool.org/sanibel-adult-programs or call (239) 472-8585. 

Sanibel Sea School is a 501c3 nonprofit whose mission is to improve the ocean’s future, one person at a time.
