Seine NettingDedicated to Learning About Nature

On a beautiful, sunny Saturday we decided to accompany students from Lee County Extension's Florida Master Naturalist Program (FMNP), instructors Bryan Fluech and Joy Hazel from Lee County Extension Services and Good Time Charters co-owner Captain Cristina Denegre and her staff on a field trip to learn about the wonders of our back bay onboard Good Time Charters' comfortable pontoon boat.

After setting out from Snook Bight Marina, the trip began with a cruise by Bird Island, where Denegre shared her extensive knowledge of local birds, explaining that there are several mangrove islands in the back bay used as nesting sites for everything from brown pelicans to roseate spoonbills.
