LEARN ABOUT LAKE WORTH LAGOON
Palm Beach County Department of Environmental Resources Management presents an educational photographic nature display from the organization’s 2022 wall calendar. The photo display showcases wildlife above water and under and beautiful environmental scenery around Palm Beach County.
The exhibits can be found in the downstairs hallway near the exit at Manatee Lagoon.
Two of the photos, a close-up of a camouflaged seahorse and a curious octopus, were photographed at Blue Heron Bridge Park by FPL’s Education & Outreach Associate Project Manager, Chelsea Bennice, to showcase the biodiversity of the Lake Worth Lagoon. There is also a photo of a bluethroat pikeblenny taken by a former Manatee Lagoon Manatee Master, Rachel Plunkett. Other local artists featured include Judy Townsend, Gael Silverblatt, Ben Hicks, Dr. Mark Cook, Sam Farkas, and Lizzy McNamee.
