Last night, I finished teaching my Florida Master Naturalist Coastal Module Class. There are now 13 new gradautes to the program. Big thanks to Renee Wilson from Rookery Bay assisted me teach the class. We had a great group of students, and I personally learned a lot from them. Hopefullyth they learned a thing or two from me too. They did their final projects for us last night. Topics ranged from black skimmer conservation to mating strategies of marine animals (nothing like watching videos of sharks, manatees, and dolphins having sex!!) The attached pictures are from one our group's project on the dynamics of beach environments the wildlife associated with it. I thought the model they made was very cool and an effective teaching tool. Very creative! We also had one student complete her final module (there's 3 in total), which makes her an official "Florida Master Naturalist." Congrats, Kara!!
