This is an update about the Aquatic Species Collection Workshop scheduled at Mote Marine Laboratory, Sarasota, FL on Saturday, 9/16 from 9 am - 11 am ET.

Mote fared okay during Hurricane Irma and our classroom has electricity and is functional for the workshop. I will not be cancelling it and look forward to seeing you all.

If you expect to miss the workshop, please let me know. In most cases, your registration fee can either be refunded or applied to a future workshop at another location.

We will meet in Mote's Mote's Marine Education Resource Center (MERC)
  1600 Ken Thompson Parkway
  Sarasota, FL

See attached for the location and available parking. MERC is the first gray building on your right as you turn down Ken Thompson Parkway. Note - parking directly in front of MERC is limited due to construction equipment. Some parking is available in Mote's Keating Center directly across the street from MERC. Additional parking is available down the street in front of the aquarium.

If you have any additional questions, please let me know. My email and phone number are below.
