You see, even though manatee “season” is from November 15-March 31, Manatee Lagoon in Riviera Beach hosts visitors all the time. It’s basically a community center with complimentary family programming and events year-round…like Manatee Tales Story Time!

Manatee Tales Story Time

Not to give away all of the exciting news in the first paragraphs of my blog post…but, we attended one of the events a few years back and had a blast. My daughter and I listened as a Manatee Master storyteller read from a colorful book and told stories about the amazing aquatic species that live in the Lake Worth Lagoon.

A coloring sheet reinforcing the story’s theme is included. All offerings will be held outdoors under the solar canopies, weather permitting, unless otherwise noted. Please keep an eye on the weather before you come to Manatee Lagoon – if it’s raining, then the session will be cancelled.

MBMom Tip: Arrive a few minutes early in order to guarantee your family’s spot or better yet, remember to register for the event online!

After story time is over, families are invited to explore the wildlife and waters outside FPL Next Generation Clean Energy Center. You can take advantage of two levels of great views and a comprehensive manatee education. We  love it!
