Seine netting, snorkeling and dissecting a squid are activities young adults with developmental disabilities typically do not get a chance to do. Thanks to a new partnership between the STARability Foundation of Naples and the Sanibel Sea School, up to 36 differently-abled individuals are exploring the beaches and waters of Sanibel once a month through January. In each three-hour session, members of STARability’s Trailblazer Academy take turns at three stations where they get hands-on, feet-wet, full immersion into learning experiences. In October, they will go to Bunche Beach to explore the intertidal zone, see fiddler crabs and mangroves, and dissect a shark. For more about STARability, visit www.STARability.org.
