SEEK Conference students visited the St Marks National Wildlife Refuge and participated in the Coastal Explorer program with Lori Nicholson, Environmental Education Director at the Refuge. This educational activity involved seining, dip netting, and learning about other coastal critters such as periwinkle snails and fiddler crabs.

Save the Earth’s Environment through Knowledge (SEEK) is an annual environmental conference for high school students sponsored by the Florida Federation of Garden Clubs. Each summer, 70 students from across the state attend the outstanding 4-day conference. Students entering grades 10, 11, or 12 are eligible to attend.

SEEK 2012 is being held at Wakulla Springs State Park, located in the Big Bend of Florida near Tallahassee. This gem in the State’s Park System features one of the largest and deepest freshwater springs in the world, pristine natural areas, and an abundance of wildlife.
