Pop-Up Booth Makes Debut


The Town of Fort Myers Beach Marine Resources Task Force successfully launched its new educational outreach initiative this past weekend at The Lovers Key Mermaid Festival. Volunteers from Turtle Time, The Mound House, Master Gardeners, and Southwest Florida Audubon shared information and answered questions all weekend.

The Pop-Up Environmental Resource Booth will be seen all over Fort Myers Beach throughout the year. They will be popping up next at The Sheriff’s Outreach Center this Thursday and Lynn Hall Park Saturday.

The committee is looking for volunteers and environmental organizations to be a Pop-Up resource for the booth.

Every month you’ll be emailed a calendar of locations, dates and time slots. If you’re interested please email Jennifer Rusk at jruskfmb@gmail.com or call 757-450-5451. Include your name, organization, location, the date you desire, time slot, resource subject, description of any educational handouts, educational modules, or swag you will be bringing with you.

Committee members Jennifer Rusk and Steve Johnson spoke about the initiative on Episode 157 of Beach Talk Radio.
