Take a walk on the wet side!  Charlotte Harbor Environmental Center, Inc. (CHEC) will be conducting free Seagrass Adventure Estuary Wading Trips at Cedar Point Environmental Park, 2300 Placida Road, Englewood at 9 AM on the following 2018 dates:

  • November 23, 2018
  • December 12, 2018
  • December 21, 2018
  • December 26, 2018

After an introductory program on aquatic environments, participants will walk a short distance to Lemon Bay where, using dip nets and hand viewers, they will wade into the shallow waters in search of the plants and animals that reside there.  This exciting hands-on activity is both educational and fun for people of all ages. Participation is limited therefore pre-registration is necessary for this free program. All children must be accompanied by an adult. For further information and/or to register, call Cedar Point Park at (941) 475-0769.  Visit for additional wading trip dates in 2019. 

Seagrass Adventures are made available with funding support from the Mosaic Company Foundation in cooperation with Charlotte County Parks, Recreation and Cultural Resources and are conducted by the Charlotte Harbor Environmental Center (CHEC).
