Want to learn about all things environmental?

The Town of Fort Myers Beach is planning its first-ever Environmental Symposium for Jan. 17.

"It's going to be geared more towards the residents here on the island, because we're going to be talking about a lot of things that impact the homes here," said environmental technician Rae Burns.

Representatives from the Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife in Sanibel, Florida Fish and Wildlife, Turtle Time, and the University of Florida's Institute for Food and Agricultural Sciences will be doing presentations.

Topics will include planting native vegetation, sea turtle lighting, nesting shorebirds, and how to handle sick and injured wildlife.

"It's going to be a very educational day," said Burns.

"It's basically an overview of all the environmental avenues that are here on the island for people to access."

Council members, representatives from the Marine Resources Task Force, and Town staff will be on hand to answer environmental questions from the public.

The free event will began setting up at 5 p.m., and run until 8 p.m at Bay Oaks Recreational Center, located at 2731 Oak Street.
