Looking for a way to give back this Thanksgiving season? Join the Tampa Bay Estuary Program, Sarasota Bay Estuary Program and Manatee County Parks and Natural Resources for a socially distant Give-a-Day for the Bay event at Perico and Robinson Preserves. To help jump start restoration at Robinson Preserve, we will be seeds from Perico Preserve. We will then travel to the Robinson Preserve expansion to disperse the collected seeds!

Approximate itinerary for the day:

This will be a great opportunity to experience two beautiful, Bradenton preserves all while giving back to the Bay!

 Bagged lunch will be provided.
