In light of the current pandemic, Rookery Bay is hosting online lessons and activities through their Virtual Education Programming. The virtual program features a new weekly theme with daily videos, tours and activities. These features can be accessed through the Rookery Bay Facebook page. The weekly themes for May are “Fish of Rookery Bay Research Reserve” from May 3 through 8, “Marine Invertebrates” from May 10 through 15 and “Coastal Resilience” from May 17 through 22.
Rookery Bay plans to resume all in-person activities and tours starting on June 8 with a photography course. One featured event will be held on June 13, when the Reserve will hold a painting class where you can learn how to paint the different fish that inhabit Rookery Bay. From 9:30 am to noon for $60 with all materials included, Jan Deswik, a local experienced artist, will instruct you on how to best capture the qualities of fish life through watercolors.
