Participants will be led on a 60-minute guided hike through a mangrove forest where they will be given a biblical overview of the mangrove ecosystem. Chasing mangrove crabs, licking salt off mangrove leaves, listening to snapping shrimp “pop” their warnings and spotting various fish hiding in the mangrove roots are all highlights of this field trip. All ages are welcome to attend. Children under 13 years old must be accompanied and supervised by a parent. Participants will meet at James A. Rutherford Park in Boca Raton, Florida (600 NE 24th Street, Boca Raton, FL 33431). Students must bring their own water and snacks.
Cost: $10 per person
Expenses: None. There is no park entrance fee.
