Susana Franco shields her eyes as Wuilmar Matias looks at a row of pear whelk eggs found at Hideaway Beach on Marco Island during a nature presentation by Rookery Bay on Wednesday afternoon. The presentation was part of “Buddy Day” at the beach, which gave 90 children from the Guadalupe After-School Program the chance to learn about aquatic life in the region. Volunteers from Rookery Bay, Friends of Tigertail Beach, Marco Island Shell Club and the city of Marco Island were on hand to educate the kids on various topics. Hideaway Beach has been hosting “Buddy Day” since 1992.
