Listen as a Manatee Master storyteller reads from a selection of colorful books sharing stories about various aquatic species that live in the Lake Worth Lagoon and the waters beyond. Then enjoy play time with our large marine life floor puzzles and coloring activities. Children, ages 2 and above, are welcome. All offerings will be held outdoors under the solar pavilions, weather permitting, unless otherwise noted. Please keep an eye on the weather before you come to Manatee Lagoon – if it’s raining, then the session will be canceled.
