Weekly Things to Do at the Manatee Lagoon Discovery Center

Posted by Amanda Hicks on Tuesday, April 10th, 2018 at 4:55pm.


Ten minutes away from the Ocean Mall, the Manatee Lagoon Discovery Center in West Palm Beach hosts weekly events that might be of interest to Singer Island residents. 

If you like learning, the Center hosts a lecture series every other Sunday with a new expert speaker every month. Topics vary from things like the octopus population under the Blue Heron Bridge to why manatees matter in our ecosystems. You'll get to ask questions, learn about fieldwork conducted by Manatee Lagoon workers and see new videos and photos of aquatic life in the Lake Worth Lagoon. The lectures are from 2-3 p.m. and they're free. See the calendar and pre-register here

Manatee Lagoon Tours are held every day the Center is open: Tuesday-Saturday. "Manatee Masters" will walk you through exhibits, observation areas, recreation areas and more while educating you on all things manatee and our local lagoon. Pick a date to attend a free tour here

Mindful Moments Yoga is a free class led by a certified instructor three times a week. The classes are usually held outside on the waterfront which makes for a peaceful, relaxing experience. Yoga is on Tuesday and Thursday from 5:45-6:45 p.m. and Saturday 8:30-9:30 a.m. The Center has mats available; pre-register for a class here

If you've never been there: The Manatee Lagoon Discovery Center is a free attraction in West Palm Beach designed to raise awareness about the endangered manatee. The 16,000 square-foot facility features hands-on exhibits inside and dozens of manatees in the Lake Worth Lagoon just outside. Their website.
