Think Manatees Are the Cutest? Learn More About Them During This Tour of Manatee Lagoon

This Saturday, take a trip to Manatee Lagoon to learn more about these gentle marine mammals! Manatee Lagoon is one of Palm Beach County’s most fun and engaging family-friendly attractions, with interactive, entertaining exhibits that tickle your curiosity about the environment of the Lake Worth Lagoon and the wonderful world of manatees. Check it out during a walking tour on August 17th.

Manatee Lagoon: An FPL Eco-Discovery Center is a free Palm Beach County educational attraction with a dedicated area for viewing manatees up close. The 16,000-square-foot center features engaging, hands-on exhibits for visitors to learn all about these threatened and unique creatures as well as the natural wonders of the surrounding Lake Worth Lagoon. On cold winter days, the facility’s observation deck is the ideal spot to view manatee herds basking in the warm-water outflows from Florida Power & Light Company’s adjacent Riviera Beach Next Generation Clean Energy Center.

Manatee Masters will guide visitors on walking tours of Manatee Lagoon’s exhibits, providing insight into manatee anatomy, physiology, the importance of GPS tracking devices, and “all things manatee” and the Lake Worth Lagoon ecosystem. Tours are open to all ages.

Manatee Lagoon is dedicated to educating the public about manatees and Lake Worth Lagoon, and inspiring communities to preserve and protect Florida’s environment and wildlife for future generations. Learn more about these creatures and conservation efforts during a Manatee Lagoon Tour! Admission is free. Participants should meet at the manatee skeleton display at the entrance of the building.
