Description: It’s time to celebrate the “Wakullaphant” (Manatees at Wakulla Springs)! Meet at the Waterfront Visitors Center for a repeating program from 11:00-3:00 detailing the manatee’s natural history in the area and specifically at the park. Information about adopting a manatee will be available as well as some free materials to delight young people. Embark on a river boat cruise for the best potential to see the “sea elephants”. The gift shop will offer specials on manatee merchandise (get an early Christmas present) while the soda fountain and restaurant join in the celebration with a confection and menu item in honor of the sirenians.
