Cruising the beauty spots along the Manatee River with members of the University Park Women's Club Garden Group

The 21 members of the University Park Women’s Club Garden Group recently took a two-hour educational and environmental eco-cruise on the MV River Skipper operated by the Manatee Riverside Tours Inc., club chair Polly Curran reports.

This cruise took club members along the Manatee River, Palma Sola, DeSoto State Park and Robinson Preserve, then over to Emerson Point Preserve, Palmetto and the estuaries along the north side of the river.

These eco-cruise adventures have become an annual tradition in May for the Garden Group.
