Learn about life in St. Andrew Bay Feb. 16

February 8, 2017

What Lies Beneath? Weird, huge, tiny, delicious, poisonous, squiggly, puffy, sleek, beautiful, and sometimes downright ugly, a huge array of interesting creatures live beneath the surface of our magnificent St. Andrew Bay.

The Friends of St. Andrews State Park will be hosting a talk by marine biologist Stephen Theberge on Thursday, Feb. 16 at 6:30 p.m.

Stephen Theberge will talk about the amazing diversity of life in St. Andrew Bay and offer suggestions on how we can help protect the Bay’s creatures and habitats. With over 20 years of experience in marine fisheries, marine biology education, program development and community outreach in the Gulf of Mexico, Atlantic and Pacific regions, Stephen Theberge has been a leader in marine biology and fisheries education initiatives. As a naturalist, educator, and interpreter on every level from K through graduate school and the general public, he has developed excellent teaching skills and expertise in integrating science, research and resource management issues into biology, seafood and fisheries education programs. He has been recognized nationally for his research and publications. He currently teaches at Rising Leaders Academy Charter School.
