One day class at ANERR

The Apalachicola National Estuarine Research Reserve will offer a one-day class in environmental science on Wednesday. Nov. 14.

The “Rivers and Floodplains Class” covers the ecology, geology, and natural history of the rivers and floodplains of the Florida Panhandle with the main focus on the Apalachicola River and floodplain. Other types of river systems will also be discussed. Learn about the diversity of animals and plants found in the river and surrounding floodplain, and their connection to the bay. Be prepared to spend part of the day in the classroom and part in the field on our boat exploring the river and walking in the floodplain. Cost is $10 per person. Rain date Nov. 1.
