Patrician Price, spokesperson for the Guana-Tolomato-Matanzas National Estuarine Research Reserve, invited all Historic City News readers to October’s monthly beach stroll and discovery walk.

“This is a Beaches-101 experience the entire family will enjoy,” Price told local reporters.  “We provide a fantastic opportunity to collect seashells and shark’s teeth while learning about animals that call the beach home.”
