Rookery Bay’s “Edscursions” take online participants on virtual field trips through live-streaming technology to explore the waters and uplands of Rookery Bay’s 110,000 acres. Each “EDscursion” is full of discovery, adventure and learning. So far, the team has explored a bird nesting island, tromped through the mangroves to reach the beautiful secluded beaches of Keewaydin Island and took a trip to “Find a Fish” with biologists in Naples Bay.
