Sanibel Sea School will offer a variety of learning opportunities for adults this spring.
Sanibel Sea School will launch a new season of learning opportunities for adults in March. Part of the organization’s SX3 Lifers series, which is designed to educate participants about timely, locally relevant topics in a fun setting, the theme for Spring 2019 will be Sea Level Rise.
 
The first event will be a screening of the documentary Before the Flood, to be held at 5 p.m. Friday, March 1 at Sanibel Sea School, 455 Periwinkle Way. Presented by National Geographic, this film features Leonardo DiCaprio on his journey as a United Nations Messenger of Peace, traveling to five continents and the Arctic to witness climate change firsthand. Viewers will learn how they can take action as individuals, and the screening will be followed by a discussion. Walk-ins are welcome and the event is free, but donations are appreciated.
 
Additional upcoming offerings for adults include guest speakers, social events, field trips, and more. Sanibel Sea School will also offer a birding course, a Red Cross First Aid certification course, and a chance to learn about harmful algal blooms from Dr. Bruce Neill, the nonprofit’s executive director.
