The event is being hosted by the 501c3 Cape Coral Friends of Wildlife, Manatee Cape Connection so your donations are Tax refundable to the extent of the law.
And, if you haven’t been to Sirenia Vista Park lately, be sure to check it out! Many wonderful changes have been made over the past couple of years including the addition of manatee viewing areas, paved walking paths, a kayak launch area, an osprey nest and purple martin houses. In addition, new benches, a Free Little Library and a butterfly garden are now onsite for the enjoyment of park visitors.
When sufficient funds are raised, the addition of a “Manateeum” will help to promote sustainable growth and wildlife protection through education offering informative displays plus environmental programs and classes, with the potential for marine research facilities on site.
