Friends of Manatee Lagoon is offering a unique opportunity to purchase personalized engraved bricks that will become a permanent part of the environmental center’s landscape. This and other fundraising efforts support our mission to expand environmental education through future enhanced exhibits and experiential learning opportunities.
Buying a personalized brick is the perfect way to honor or memorialize someone special. A significant event or occasion can also be memorialized, such as a birth, graduation, wedding or retirement.
There are two different sizes of bricks to choose from: 4 x 8 ($200) and 8 x 8 ($350). You may personalize bricks with a custom message of your choice.
Donors will receive a notification via email when their brick is installed. The public is welcome to visit Manatee Lagoon- open daily through Manatee Season (Nov. 15- March 31) closed Mondays during the remainder of the year (April 1- Nov. 14). Hours of operation: 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Thank you for supporting our mission!
