Marie Selby Botanical Gardens launches virtual tours

In an effort to help students safely explore Marie Selby Botanical Gardens’ (Selby Gardens) campuses from their classrooms or homes during the pandemic, the education team created and launched a series of virtual tours. Students can virtually stroll along the bayfront at Selby Gardens’ Downtown Sarasota campus, learning about the mangroves that are an important part of the coastal ecosystem. Next, students virtually hop aboard the Carefree Learner to head out into Sarasota Bay for an up-close-and-personal encounter with creatures that live in this important estuary. Students can also virtually visit the Historic Spanish Point campus to learn about the people who inhabited this area some 5,000 years ago and to see how archaeologists study the ancient past. Or they can delve into pioneer life at the Historic Spanish Point campus through virtual visits to the Guptill House, Pioneer Boatyard, and Packing House. The virtual tours are accompanied by downloadable curricular packets that support state education standards. The tours are also accessible by parents who homeschool their children, kids in summer camp programs, and parents who just want to add to their child’s educational experience. For more information, please contact Lynn Bates at lbates@selby.org or 210•0874. Photo: Aboard the Carefree Learner, Megan Ehlers talks about a pinfish.
