About the Event

The Everglades is the gem of Florida. Join Surf Skate Science on an Everglades Experience at Grassy Waters Preserve, West Palm. Limited to 45 participants. Expect to get wet up to your knees and muddy. If you have never done a swamp tromp before, be prepared for the experience of a lifetime as we explore the "real" Florida and learn about the incredible secrets of the Everglades.

FAQs:

  1. Read this info sheet: for information on what participants should wear and bring.
  2. FIELD TRIP WAIVER : All students and chaperones must bring this signed toyour field trip.
  3. Please make sure all participants, including chaperones, dress in weather-appropriate clothing and are ready to get wet and muddy. Due to the rainwater levels, we will likely be at least thigh-deep in parts of the pond. Participants should wear closed-toe water shoes or old tennis shoes for getting into the water (no rain boots or flip flops). Everyone should also bring water, hat, sunscreen, and change of clothes for a dry ride back to school.
