Mrs. Mahoney’s environmental science class had the opportunity to go to Homosassa Springs and swim with the manatees! The students were able to learn about manatees and other marine life. The students spent the afternoon with the boat captains that took them on the tour, learning about the manatees and swimming with them.
“It was a great experience and I would definitely do it again!”
Josh Baker ’19
Please remember! Follow the rules on the water, don’t drive fast in no wake zones, keep the manatees safe!
