Rain hampered but didn't totally wash out Earth Day at Rookery Bay.  While outdoor activities like hiking & kayaking were mostly a bust the sophisticated indoor learning center saved the day.

Families enjoyed everything from the touch tank and fish feeding to a series of highly produced nature movies.

Displays inside educated people on the nature and value of our estuarine and mangrove environments with replica birds, fish and informational signage too.

Later on a live snake presentation held attendees' attention. For more info on the facility including membership & activities visit  http://www.rookerybay.org/learning-center.
