TR Academy Lecture Series – Mote Marine Laboratory and Aquarium
February 17 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
We will kick off the season on Thursday afternoon, January 20, at 2pm with something that has been the talk of the town for some time in southwest Florida. Mote Marine Laboratory and Aquarium is expanding. Mote SEA (Science Education Program), planned for Nathan Benderson Park, is projected to inspire 700,000 visitors from the Sarasota-Manatee region and around the world each year with incredible displays of marine life, interactive technology and windows into Mote’s amazing science.
Join us on January 20th and hear long time Mote volunteer, docent and speaker (and former Turtle Rock resident) Ann Walborn, who will share Mote’s history, ground-breaking expanding research, conservation and education programs. We will also be joined by Michael Moore, who is leading the Campaign for Mote’s Science Education Aquarium, He will transport you BEHIND THE SCENES with a virtual tour of MOTE SEA.
We promise you will leave inspired and wanting to learn more!
