Muck Abouts

Location: 13810 Waterfront Drive, Pineland, Florida

9 AM - 12 Noon.

We are pleased to be able to offer again our popular “Muck Abouts” thanks to the sponsorship of the Charlotte Harbor National Estuary Program. “Muck Abouts” offer a chance to wade, and learn first-hand, about the plants and animals, of local estuaries. We also explore estuary dynamics and how archaeologists use the remains of estuary animals to determine environmental conditions of long ago.

Last season Pine Island resident Susanne Quattro attended one of our outings and wrote this about her experience, “We had a wonderful morning and learned quite a bit. I wish everyone would take your tours.”

“Muck Abouts” begin at the Calusa Heritage Trail pavilion and are available to adults and children over 9 years of age by preregistration only (one adult per 4 children maximum). Participants must wear sturdy shoes, clothing to get wet, and expect to encounter mud! Each date is limited to 20 people. Call 239-283-2157 to register.
