World Ocean Day Celebration
To celebrate World Ocean Day we are bringing together people that are passionate and curious about the ocean - and inviting everyone that are interested in learning more about their big blue backyard.
Join us at MERC for an event featuring:
- An opportunity to meet new people, connect with your community, and learn about restoration projects which are underway in the Gulf.
- An open invite to join in on a water activity or group swim (sea state dependent) to reap the benefits of physically connecting with our sea despite winter water temps, set to occur between 5 & 5:15 pm, coinciding with sunset at 5:12 pm.
- This will be followed by warm showers for those that need them, and an offering of hot drinks and warm food inside the MERC hall.
- The seminar portion of the event will start at 6:30 with plenty of time for questions and networking afterwards.
Presentations will feature insight from marine scientists, community leaders and other passionate people in the marine conservation & restoration space.
More details on guest speakers and presentations to come at a later date! Check our facebook event page or website for more information.
