A letter was sent home last week saying that anyone could attend this trip. There is a fee at the door of the Wetlands but other than that you are welcome to join us for the day. The bus leaves SJRS at 8:30. If any car pooling is done NO CARS can be parked in the front lot; please use the church lot or the street. The buses arrive at school at 2:15 and we wont be back yet! We will leave the lot by 8:30 and arrive at the Wetlands Institute on Stone Harbor Boulevard at 9:00. The educational part begins promptly. When that is finished, around 11:00, the kids will eat lunch, shop at the gift shop, visit the small aquarium and turtle housing, and walk up the look out tower. We will board the bus and head to the beach in Avalon around 12:30. The educational instruction begins the minute they step off the bus, discussing the trees at the beach entrance. We leave the beach by 2:00 to head back to school.
*** Please pack them and or pre-apply sunblock, it appears we will get some sun! Also, bug spray might come in handy. Some years there have been bugs, others not, hard to tell with the breeze and tides. Lunch is to be brought in either a brown bag or lunch box, along with snacks and drinks, especially water, stay hydrated! Flip flops or slides can be packed for the beach portion but for the Wetlands part they MUST be wearing shoes or sneaks (Sanuk style is fine) but be prepared, they may get dirty. Please dress appropriately for being representatives of SJRS! Appears it will be around 75degrees, so shorts are fine. The kids do get a little wet at both places. Looking forward to a nice day!!!
