Embark on a magical journey under the sea with our new and improved story time program, “Manatee Tales: Adventures with Mia & Friends.” Held every other Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., this captivating program immerses children in the fascination of marine life. It begins with a kid-friendly exploration of our exhibit, opening an underwater world filled with the beauty and mystery of the creatures that call the Lake Worth Lagoon home.

The adventure continues in our newly renovated classroom, meticulously designed to transport children to a mesmerizing underwater ecosystem. Here, our Manatee Masters bring storybooks to life detailing the enchanting escapades of Mia the Manatee’s lovable animal friends. Every tale provides a stimulating journey daring to inspire and encourage curiosity in young minds.

The story time culminates with children creating a craft inspired by the tale of the day, fostering their artistic expression and reinforcing their learning. This immersive program energizes creativity, education, and storytelling all while creating memorable experiences. Join us at Manatee Lagoon – An FPL Eco-Discovery Center® for an unforgettable adventure!
