Nov. 16: Free red tide forum in Boca Grande

Learn about Florida red tide blooms — including the challenging bloom of 2017-2018 — during a Boca Grande Red Tide Forum featuring scientists, university professors and wildlife rehabilitators.

The free public forum, co-hosted by Mote Marine Laboratory and the Barrier Island Parks Society, will take place from 3-5 p.m. Nov. 16 in the Boca Grande Community Center Auditorium, followed by a reception with light bites and wine in the Center’s Woman’s Club room. Speakers from Mote, Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife (CROW), University of South Florida (USF) and Charlotte Harbor National Estuary Program (CHNEP) will each give a 10-15 minute presentation and then participate in a 20-minute panel discussion.

The event is free. RSVP is not required but is encouraged: RSVP here. Any updates will be posted at mote.org/boca.
