Around the Bend Nature & Discovery Tours is sponsoring family nature discovery experiences in Manatee & Sarasota Counties on Saturday, September 21, 2019.

The Sarasota County experience will be held at 11:30 a.m. at Ken Thompson Park on City Island in Sarasota, and will include a dip net/grass bed exploration and a nature scavenger hunt in the mangroves.

Around the Bend (ATB) celebrates the joy and exuberance of children and the joy and awe that is found in nature. Bringing them together is what we do. To that end, ATB is holding these experiences in partnership with Take A Child Outside, a national effort to reconnect children with nature. (takeachildoutside.org). Around the Bend is one of only two organizations in the state participating in the annual Take a Child Outside Week.

The experiences on September 21 will include fun nature based discovery and sensory activities and will demonstrate to parents engaging ways to deepen their families connection with the outdoors and wildlife.

Light refreshments will be served. Participants should bring water bottles. We will have extra water on site and fresh fruit. Please wear shoes (no flip flops!) and clothes that can get wet.
