Manatee County Parks and Natural Resources Department will host its first ever World Oceans Day Festival, Saturday June 3 at Emerson Point Preserve.

The free festival will kick off at 9 a.m. and continue until noon at Emerson Point Preserve, a 365-acre preserve located in Palmetto at the mouth of the Manatee River and Tampa Bay Estuary. World Oceans Day Festival is a fun family friendly event celebrating the salty seas. A variety of ocean-themed activities will be available for participants to learn about Worlds Oceans Day.

Dip nets into the water and discover the creatures hiding beneath the waves. Learn amazing facts about our large wildlife—like sea turtles and manatees. Play oyster games and explore the history of fishing in Manatee County while sampling foods from local estuaries. During the event, visitors can take a break from the heat in Emerson’s classroom and learn from scientists working in the field.
