Teens are learning about environmental science at Rookery Bay’s Summer Institute for Marine Science (SIMS) camp. It kicked off yesterday with a tour of the Environmental Learning Center and a kayak expedition on Henderson Creek. As part of their eco-studies, the students collected mangrove leaves while out on the water. More fun and science to come this week including pulling a boat trawl, a visit with scientists at Florida Gulf Coast University’s Vester Field Station and a snorkeling eco-tour at Charlotte Harbor Aquatic Preserve.
