COST: There is no charge for the presentation but an honorarium is welcome.
WHERE: Ordinarily, we are only able to present to community organizations within approximately 30 miles of Mote Marine Laboratory - City Island Campus. Requests outside of this will be considered if a Volunteer Speaker is willing to present farther away.
