News And Highlights



Approximately 60 fourth-graders from Pine Jog Elementary School in Palm Beach County will have an adventure they won't soon forget. Just like Charlie Pierce, the fictional children's books character, the kids will explore the South Florida outdoors, getting close to the area's fish and wildlife, canoeing, hiking and learning how to shoot a bow and arrow, among other activities.

On Saturday, April 30, the Fish and Wildlife Research Institute (FWRI) will open its doors to the public from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. for MarineQuest 2011. Visitors can explore the world of science at FWRI headquarters, at 100 8th Ave. S.E., in downtown St. Petersburg.

The 17th annual MarineQuest is a free event that allows visitors of all ages to experience science firsthand with more than 60 exhibits. Visitors can check out live animals in touch tanks, interact with some of Florida's top scientists and learn about current fish and wildlife research in Florida. Special activities for children include wildlife origami, face painting and the Japanese art of "gyotaku" - fish printing.

Are you wild about wildlife, or just want to know more? Either way, come join the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) at the Chinsegut Nature Center's annual Birding and Wildlife Festival April 29 and 30. It's fun, and it's geared for the entire family.
