🌎 The most adventurous time of year is back! 🌎

2021 begins again on Monday, November 15th! This year's theme is marine debris and our mission as citizens to keep the oceans clean.

Every year Florida students and community members work hard to assist the health of our beaches and rich ocean life. Everyone has a role to play in addressing marine debris - whether its awareness, organizing pickups, analyzing data or using your creativity! This year at flgeoweek.com we're bringing you daily bell-ringers, lessons, and featured resources to introduce your class to the tools they’ll need to get involved in preserving our beautiful ocean ecology 🐟🐠🐡
