There will be several aquatic activity tables set up on the "Big Lawn." Plus, since it is National Trails Day, there will be hikes that highlight water-related facts. For instance, did you know that our native prickly pear cactus is a great survival plant for people as well as animals? The flowers produce edible fruit and the prickly pads can be peeled away to provide a moist snack when water is scarce.
Participating organizations include Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful, Tampa Bay WaterAtlas and ConserveItForward.org.
Can't make the event? You can still enter the prize drawing by filling out the survey on the registration webpage. Since only entries with all correct answers are eligible for the drawing, it will help to attend the event where all the questions will be answered during the morning course.
