As Rookery Bay's Summer of Sharks and Kids Free Fridays continued, today's feature was skates and rays- closely related to sharks.

As always Deborah Woods conducted a story time presentation and book reading on the subject, attendees got to handle real scientific remains, check out a video and look over shark related artwork.

Then the big event.

The single most popular activity of the program is the shark dissection performed every two weeks and projected on a huge screen.  The program runs the next two Fridays with plenty of fun and education available to kids and adults.

The last dissection is on August 19th.

Rookery Bay is located at 300 Tower Road, just south the corner of US 41 and Collier Boulevard in East Naples. For more information, call 239-417-6310 or online at rookerybay.org.
