Hey club members!

Just an announcement real quick to see who would like to do this. Tampa Bay Watch was hoping we'd like to team up with them for some hands-on environmental fun.

Coming up in April they are doing a native planting on the dunes in Ft DeSoto from 9am-noon. This helps stop erosion and keep the ecosystem there healthy! (Plus it gets us merit as a club, woo! Wink ). It's just a few short hours and we will learn a lot about the habitats found locally, which is pretty cool in my book.

Can everyone just let me know if this sounds good? If you'd like to go, we could probably also do a beach sweep/netting (for those with a license) afterward to see what we can find, and maybe lunch?

If you'd like to see what other types of activities you can do with TBW, you can click here.. I'll probably be doing one of those oyster domes if anyone wants to join me!

The main site for TBW is here.

They have not gotten an exact day yet, but she promised soon. It will be during the week! And I am sure we can sign off as community service, I will try to find out more for you to make sure we get the right paperwork done.

That sounds like a neat opportunity, but it would really depend on what day. April's nearing the end of the semester and is full of final lab reports, papers and exams Sad

I asked the rep how soon we have to "RSVP" and reminded her that april was nearing finals, so the date would determine who could come. I'm sure we don't have to make a move before they pick a date though Wink

Guys, they have changed the date. After Samantha emailed about upcoming events, I decided to let TBW know that we were scheduled to be on board and they only THEN told me the date had been changed! :/ I'm glad we didn't show up!!

The new date is Wednesday, April 18th from 9am – noon.. which I unfortunately cannot make as I work. Does this date work for anyone else? If not, we can always attend one of their other events, over the summer and into the fall is when things pick up, and we can join the beach sweep in September.

Please let me know! Thanks guys!! Smile

I still can't make it...

We need an officer present, so if Ashley and I can't make it...Nicholas or Dawn?
