Tampa Bay Sierra Club is teaming up with Tampa Bay Mangrove Watch, a new program that will monitor the health of the mangrove forests throughout the Tampa Bay area. The research will include GPS video recording and gathering scientific data of specific shorelines which will be analyzed by scientists and students at Saint Leo University and then uploaded to a global Mangrove Watch database. We are looking for individuals willing to get in the mangroves with us at Upper Tampa Bay Park. This is scientific work in direct sun and not appropriate for young children. This is not an outing.
Participants should be experienced paddlers and interested in scientific research. KAYAKS WILL BE PROVIDED FOR THIS TRAINING.
