Knowledge & Nibbles: The History & Mystery of the Sponge

Join us for a fascinating talk on sponges and the sponge industry. For many years, the sponge industry was the largest maritime industry in Florida, and Tarpon Springs was and still is known as “The Sponge Capital of the World.” The sponge continues to play a vital role in the local economy, and the animal (it is not a plant!) has a fascinating history.

Complimentary light refreshments.
