“Taking Care of Sarasota Bay: Current Conditions and Actions for a Healthier Future”

As part of the celebration of our 75th Anniversary and in celebration of our Year of Light, we’re shedding light on the health of our local ecosystems and bringing the community together in support of restored waterways for manatees and more during March’s think + drink / science program.

Our think + drink / science is an opportunity for you to grab an adult beverage and learn about science and nature in a relaxed and informal setting. The day’s expert gives a short presentation, then opens the floor for questions and discussion!

During this think + drink / science program — “Taking Care of Sarasota Bay: Current Conditions and Actions for a Healthier Future” — The Bishop welcomes Dr. Dave Tomasko, Executive Director of the Sarasota Bay Estuary Program, to share the latest findings on the health of Sarasota Bay and what needs to be done to restore it to a healthier condition. He’ll also discuss the projects and programs planned to reach the goal of a healthier Sarasota Bay.

Dr. Tomasko  has more than 30 years of experience in water quality assessments and developing science-based natural resource plans in the Gulf of Mexico and in international locales.

  • The evening begins at 6:30pm with beverages on the patio in front of the Museum; presentation begins at 7pm inside The Planetarium.
  • $15 for members of the Discovery Society; $20 for all others (registration includes one free beverage per person. Beer and wine cash bar available)
  • Seating in The Planetarium is on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • The Bishop follows the CDC’s COVID-19 Community Levels guidelines. Please visit www.CDC.gov to see the current Manatee County Community Level before visiting. Masks must be worn indoors when Community Levels are high.
