The public is welcome back to Manatee Lagoon's grounds as of September 1, 2021. On weekdays, you're invited to come enjoy the observation deck and outdoor amenities. Please note that the indoor facility and second-floor observation deck remain closed until further notice.

Manatee Lagoon is exploring how we can work with volunteers as needed. At this time, we do not have a formal program for volunteers, but we plan to in the future. If you would like to be contacted when the volunteer program opens up, please fill out this form and one of our team members will reach out to you in the future. Thank you for your patience.
