SBEP logo

The Sarasota Bay Estuary Program is looking for volunteers, preferably those with boats, to help survey macroalgae and seagrass in Sarasota Bay during the last two weeks of July.

In partnership UF/IFAS Extension Program, Florida Sea Grant, Mote Marine Laboratory & Aquarium, and Sarasota and Manatee counties, the Eyes on Seagrass Program takes place twice a year in the spring and summer and helps inform the Sarasota Bay ecosystem health report card.

The survey takes about 1 hour. Training and sampling gear will be provided.
