Contact and/or Presenter Information
Authorization for the Chairman to sign grant agreement in the amount of $1,981.00 with Tampa Bay Estuary Program (grantor) and adoption of Budget Resolution B-18-036 amending the annual budget for Manatee County Florida for fiscal year 2018.
Manatee County's Parks and Natural Resources Department has received a small grant for $1,981.00 from Tampa Bay Estuary Program. Funding will be used to purchase snorkeling fins, masks, and other reusable supplies for a new Snorkeling 101 Program at Emerson Point Preserve. The snorkeling equipment will be used for seasonal programs. During this program, 20 participants will learn about safety, wildlife identification, and ways to protect Manatee County's shore while participating in an adventure sport. The addition of a snorkeling program will complement our established kayaking and fishing activities.
This is an introductory program that will teach participants the basics of snorkeling while giving them the foundation so they can safely snorkel while preserving the beauty of Manatee County's waterways.
Adoption of Budget Resolution B-18-036 is requested.
