  • Mia’s Summer Shell-A-Bration – Celebrate the summer at Manatee Lagoon – An FPL Eco-Discovery Center® with Mia’s Summer Shell-A-Bration, a free event on Saturday, June 29.

Additionally, the event will showcase a “Manatee Rescue” simulation, allowing individuals to experience firsthand the critical role played by conservationists in rescuing and protecting these magnificent creatures.


  • Wild about Wildlife Virtual Summer Camp – Now in its fifth year, the Wild About Wildlife Virtual Summer Camp program will include week-long virtual camp experiences with half-day morning schedules filled with animal observations, experiments, games, crafts and educational lessons hosted by educators from Mote Marine Laboratory & Aquarium, The Reef Institute and Manatee Lagoon. Camp sessions will feature a mix of live, pre-recorded and do-at-your-own-pace content. Although lessons are geared towards children ages 6 to 9, other ages are welcome to register and participate. The first week will run June 10 – 14 and the second week will be available July 15 – 19.


  • Manatee Tales: Adventures with Mia and Friends – Every other Saturday throughout the summer from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m., a Manatee Master will guide attendees on a short, kid-friendly tour of Manatee Lagoon, then head into our classroom to read from a selection of books filled with information about various marine life. After the story kids will get the chance to create and take home a craft based on that day’s book. This program will launch our new classroom which has been given an immersive under-sea makeover! To celebrate the launch, we will be giving out a FREE manatee plushie to each child who registers and attends the program during the month of June!
