The Sanibel Sea School has partnered with Casa Ybel Resort to offer two weekly programs on the resort property – Guided Beach Walks and Half Day Programs for Kids – for guests and the public.

Offered on Tuesdays at 9 a.m., the Guided Beach Walks will be led by organization’s knowledgeable marine science educators, and they will provide an opportunity for participants to learn some basic biology, discover what has washed ashore, and ask questions.

“Each walk is different, because we never know what we are going to find,” educator Shannon Stainken said. “We also do our best to tailor each walk to the group’s interests.”

Scheduled for Thursdays from 1 to 4 p.m., the Half Day Programs for Kids will be similar to those offered at the organization’s Flagship Campus on Sanibel’s east end. Each has its own ocean theme.

“We are so excited to partner with Casa Ybel because their beachfront property provides great opportunities for ocean exploration,” Stainken said. “We look forward to showing their guests around the resort from a new, more biological perspective.”

To register for programs at Casa Ybel, contact the front desk at 239-472-3145.

The Sanibel Sea School is a non-profit organization whose mission is to improve the ocean’s future, one person at a time. For more information, visit sanibelseaschool.org or call 239-472-8585.
