Join the University of Florida / Charlotte County Sea Grant Ex-tension program, by participating in the 2014 Great Bay Scallop Search Saturday, July 26.

The search is a resource-monitoring program where volunteers snorkel, looking for scallops in select seagrass areas.

About 40 shallow draft boats are needed with up to 150 participants. Canoes and Kayaks are also welcome. Scallop searchers will meet at 8:30 a.m. at Gasparilla Marina to receive survey equipment and instructions for the monitoring event.

Lunch will be provided once you return to shore.

Reservations are required.
