Ales and Wild Tales Talks are back in 2022

Jan. 12 @ 6 pm @ The Ale and the Witch, 111 2nd Ave NE, St Petersburg in the courtyard

The first talk of the year features Tampa Bay Estuary Program’s Joe Whalen, science communication designer and creator at the Tampa Bay Estuary Program will present about the program and its mission. The Tampa Bay Estuary Program is one of 28 programs designated by Congress to restore and protect estuaries of national significance. It works with partners to carry out restoration and education within Tampa Bay’s 400-square-mile watershed.

Joe curates and distills content that complements the invaluable work being done on the ground. He also runs the program’s Trash-Free Waters initiative for removing marine debris.

The Center for Biological Diversity and Friends of the Tampa Bay National Wildlife Refuges team up with The Ale and the Witch to bring you environmental education, conversation and beer.

Cost: Free (featuring affordable craft beer)
The event takes place outdoors. Masks, vaccinations and social distancing are strongly encouraged. Mark your calendar: “Ales and Wild Tails” takes place on the second Wednesday of every month.

Discover the Island hopefully will return in Fall 2022.
