The GTM Research Reserve will host Family Seining on the second Saturday from 8:30-10:30 am. Join staff and/or volunteers for a guided family seining activity. Visitors will get the chance to pull a seine net through Guana Lake, collecting species of fish, crabs and more, and then learn about the animals and their roles in the habitat. All necessary gear, including waders and boots, will be provided. There is a $3 per vehicle parking fee. The event is free.
Please meet the guides at Guana Dam Recreational Area. They will be located at either the north or south boat launch, depending on the tide. For more information, call 904-823-4500 or visit Fourth Saturday Family Seining Online Registration to reserve a spot online. If space is full, you are encouraged to sign up for the waiting list. A Family Seining event is also held on the second Saturday of every month.
