SEA TURTLE AWARENESS PROGRAM
John U. Lloyd Beach State Park
Wednesdays and Fridays, June and July
Join a Park Ranger every Wednesday and Friday evening during the months of June and July. The group will meet around a campfire at the Sea Grape Pavilion and learn about sea turtles in the past, present and future. Participants will be greeted by a friendly Park Ranger and will be allowed to browse through an assortment of sea turtle displays. Informational brochures will also be available.
Our program will include a Ranger talk and a 20-minute slide or PowerPoint presentation, followed by a question and answer period. While the program is taking place, a scout will search for a nesting Loggerhead sea turtle.
