Guided nature tour at Lettuce Lake Park
Lettuce Lake Park's guided tours are offered Saturdays and Sundays at 8:30 a.m. They take participants through the boardwalk and along the scenic Hillsborough River. Park rangers will highlight many native plants, a variety of birds, and usually even an alligator or two. Those bold enough to climb the three story observation tower can enjoy a scenic overlook from the skies. Those wishing to participate should meet inside the Visitor Center. Wear comfortable clothes.

See a show
Late Nite Catechism – but not really, just a very funny show. It will be shown Sunday at the Capitol Theatre in Downtown Clearwater. Instead of partaking in a relaxing summer break, Sister has been selected to teach a summer catechism course for the students who decided not to pay attention throughout the year and she is not too happy about being stuck with them! Sister will interact with the audience as she teaches her course, providing a comedic rendition of lectures. If you know what's good for you, don't be late!
