Virtual Visit and Q&A

If you can’t come to Manatee Lagoon in person (our center is closed until further notice), why not join us for a live 30-minute virtual visit! Join one of our center’s educators, we call them Manatee Masters, as they share some cool facts about manatees or other local marine life as well as the surrounding Lake Worth Lagoon. The session’s virtual experience, which is open to all ages, will include a fun mini-lesson, typically focused on a topic from one of our center’s exhibits, followed by a live view of what can be seen from the center’s observation deck that day (weather permitting). Then you’ll have the opportunity to get answers to your manatee-related questions in a Q&A session with our Manatee Master.
