What's Included

This might seem like an unusual combination, but during this class we will visit the original site of Bailey’s General Store to learn a little bit of island history while we look for the Gopher Tortoises that now call it home. This course is sure to offer a winning combination of biology mixed with the past, and you never know when an island legend might make an appearance. Doc Bruce and Sanibel Sea School’s educators will present a seminar-style lecture on a different marine science topic each week. Each lecture will be accompanied by an opportunity to explore the topic of the day in a field setting, and will offer the chance to better understand some rarely mentioned aspects of our local ecosystem. Our Barefoot Academy classes are open to adults ages 18 and up. Children ages 15 and up may register with an adult who is 18 or older.
