Opening Weekend For Manatee Lagoon
Saturday, 02/06/2016 – 09:00 am – 04:00 pm
6000 N. Flagler Drive,
West Palm Beach, Florida 33407
Who: Locals and visitors are invited to be the first to experience Manatee Lagoon – An FPL Eco-Discovery Center™, opening for the first time to the public on Saturday, Feb. 6, 2016.
What: Manatee Lagoon is designed to provide visitors with engaging opportunities to learn about these endangered and unique creatures with a dedicated area for viewing manatees up close if consistent colder temperatures produce the right conditions. The warm water outflows from the adjacent FPL Riviera Beach Next Generation Clean Energy Center have attracted hundreds of manatees each year, particularly during the cold winter months. This new waterfront facility provides opportunities for the public to learn more about these marine mammals and what is needed to protect their environment.
The 16,000-sq.-ft. center offers free admission, two levels of exhibit and meeting space, a boardwalk to observe manatees in the Lake Worth Lagoon, picnic area, a pavilion, café and gift shop.
Manatee Lagoon is open Tuesdays-Sundays from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Manatee Lagoon is closed on Mondays
