Saturday activities (there are a few openings, in the following)...

Swim with the Manatees, led by local arrangements host Chris Anderson
(Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission):
We will be traveling to Crystal River where we suit up in a wet suit and
learn about the manatee in Florida. Afterward, we head out to the
springs on a chartered "dive boat". We don a mask and a snorkel and
enjoy a nice swim while watching these animals. The swim lasts 2-3
hours, then we head back to the dock. After "de-suiting" we'll head next
door for lunch.
Tour Historic Ybor City, from your tour guides Lou Cross (Florida State
University) and Tanya Buckingham (University of Wisconsin-Madison
Cartography Lab):
The day will begin with a trip to the famers' market, picking up a
guided walking tour of the historic district, and we should have time to
explore Florida's Latin Quarter on your own.
ESRI will be hosting a Community Basemap Workshop, and there are still a
few remaining spots. 
Hope to see you in St. Pete!
