Important Announcement from the Vieques Conservation and Historical Trust

December 3, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

Here is an important announcement from Barbara Hyland, President of the Trust.

Besides offering a timely opportunity for your Christmas shopping, I love the announcement of a program for children to enjoy the beauty of Vieques guided by Captain Mark Martin.


Dear Members and  Friends

The Gift shop at the Vieques Conservation and Historical Trust is making some room for some exciting new products so we are having a sale this week…Up to 50% off on some items.  Most everything else is 20% off. Only until Sunday Dec 4th.  Good opportunity for some Christmas shopping…

Every purchase at the Gift Shop is a donation to help support programs at the Trust — like the MANTA environmental education, the Scholarship program and the new Bioluminescent Bay monitoring program.

We have the dates for the  MANTAstic environmental learning experience for young visitors to Vieques: December 22, 29 and 30. Also January 3,4. The program will start at 9 am and run until 2 pm. Each session we will accept up to a maximum of 10 kids  8-15 years old — but they must be good swimmers. They are going to be working with Captain Mark Martin who will be performing his usual magic with the young people. There will be kayaking and snorkeling, collecting and releasing marine creatures and other adventures. Watch Captain Mark catch a lionfish! As part of the registration each student will receive a special glow in the dark MANTA t-shirt and book on Vieques flora and fauna.

The cost will be $100 per student, per day  ($70 and a donation of $30 towards the regular MANTA program). Children can attend one or more days.

Registration must be at least 3 days before the program date (earlier if you want to be sure of a place) and kids should bring: Hat, sunblock, water, comfortable hiking shoes (no flip flops), bathing suit, towel. Also kids should bring their own lunch.

If you are interested, please email back or call and we will send you registration and permission forms.

Best wishes for the holiday season.
