Local kids invited to explore Lake Worth Lagoon’s wild side

July 22, 2018 by  

Lake Worth Lagoon is home to many different creatures that crawl, swim, or fly, and local kids will have a chance to learn more about them during an upcoming event.

The Palm Beach County Department of Environmental Resources Management ( ]ERM) has arranged a morning of learning about this community environmental legacy and the creatures that call it home. It will be interactive and include hands-on learning that will allow those who participate to become a “mini marine scientist” for the occasion.

The children who take part will take samples from the lagoon using a variety of equipment with a goal of finding out more about the plants and animals that can be found in it. These range from large animals such as birds to ones so small they cannot be seen with the naked eye.

Kids will also discover how animals have each adapted to life in and around the water, and they will also be invited to make a craft to take home with them as a memento of the day. Stationery printers can supply an assortment of promotional materials to help let the local community know when and where an event like this will be taking place.

August 9 has been chosen as the date for this activity, and it will be held at 10 South Ocean Boulevard in Lake Worth. It is scheduled to run from 9:00 am to 11:00 am, and it is free to register.
